Liana Doula Postnatal Packages
As any new parents will tell you, the first few weeks after your baby’s birth are some of the most magical moments in anyone’s life. You are filled with awe, gratitude, pride and love as you marvel at this wonderful new person that you have created.
But it can also be a challenging time for parents and family. You want to give all of the love and care you can to your new baby, and you imagine that this should somehow come naturally… if only babies came with instruction manuals!
This is where I can give you an enormous amount of support in your own home as your postnatal doula.
I am here to help you navigate your journey as new parents by giving you the care and attention that will help you flourish during the magical first weeks following the birth. I can help make your transition into parenthood as smooth as possible by being a caring and encouraging helper.
The nature of my support will vary greatly depending on whether it’s your first child or subsequent children.
My postnatal doula services include light belly/feet massage, breastfeeding support, anything from light housework to just allowing you to rest, and have some time for yourself. I’ll aim to give both parents the skills and knowledge to help them feel more confident in caring for their newborn. I will offer suggestions but allow you both to make your own decisions and plans.
Drawing on the wisdom of experience, I can:
- Provide breastfeeding support
- Help you to recognize and address your baby’s needs
- Help you get enough sleep by looking after baby in your home while you rest
- Pop a load in the washing machine or dishwasher
- Be a friend and a good listener
- Take care of older siblings so mum and dad can have time with the new baby
In the comfort of your home, we provide this wonderfully relaxing postnatal massage. Postnatal massage can be a great way for a new mother to feel calm and relaxed after birth. Even though the focus is on relaxation this massage encourages the mother’s uterus back to its pre-pregnancy size and can be done at any point after birth. The postnatal massage also assists with breastfeeding as we work on certain acupressure points together with lymph nodes. The massage lasts for 50 minutes.
