Women are cherished, and looked out for so well, during their pregnancies but are then too often left on their own to ‘muddle through’ once their baby/babies has/have arrived. Add to that the amount of information available to us nowadays, in books, articles, blogs and well-meaning family and friends, and it can at times go from being a little confusing to utterly overwhelming.
How can I help you in the best possible way?
By providing you with information on the postpartum period so that you can make arrangements to be supported in the best way possible. Having completed the Younique Postnatal Planning course this summer, I share what I learned with couples during my birth preparation course sessions, making it a truly comprehensive course for expectant parents.
I give you the details of who to get in touch with if you have any concerns about your physical or mental wellbeing, your nutritional needs or breastfeeding support.
I share my knowledge of this exciting and exhausting time so that you don't need to read several books on the subject (I've read these for you) at a time when you can probably only just fit in reading through a booklet about birth while still working!
I strongly believe that women would be more confident about life after the birth of their baby/babies if they received more personal support, care and information during what's referred to as the '4th trimester', as well as throughout the first year of motherhood.
bump & glide is about the mother, not the baby. There is an overwhelming wealth of information on how to care for your baby but nowhere near enough on how to care for you, the mother.
In my postnatal sessions I discuss the 6 to 8 week postnatal GP appointment, basic recovery needs as well as provide you with information on women's health and human resource experts who can help you take things further once you feel ready.
