Our programme starts with a visit from one of our midwives the day after the mother and baby are discharged from the hospital. The visits normally continue regularly for a period of around 3 weeks and are planned out with you. This invaluable support enables families to properly adjust to their new situation, ensures that breastfeeding is well established and that parents' emotional well-being is secured.
Each visit lasts one hour on weekdays only. This usually includes help and support in:
Performing a complete physical check on the baby
Breastfeeding support and education - our midwives are also lactation consultants
Assistance in the care and maintenance of the belly button
A demonstration of the basics of baby massage
Weighing the baby
Checking that the uterus is contracting well
Checking that the perineum/wound is healing well
Giving emotional support to the new parents (assessing 'baby blues", postnatal depression)
Discussing different aspects of parenting and baby care, such as sleeping, settling, safety, routines
This package includes 4 x 1-hour sessions. The packages are to be used within the first 6 months from the first visit. Visits are usually conducted on weekdays only (Monday to Friday) but your care will be carefully planned with this in mind.
Our Nexus and Best of Both couples enjoy a 10% discount off all the services in their package, including home visits.
