Postnatal care is well known to be the Cinderella service and is often an afterthought, with the majority of focus put on the birth. Regular appointments in the first few weeks after birth, can help you get your parenting journey off to a flying start, building confidence and offering lots of reassurance when you are settling in to your new role.
Harvest Moon £900
Daily visits for the first week after birth to get breastfeeding off to a good start. Great whether this is your 1st or 5th baby, as each breastfeeding journey can be so different.

The module will be ever evolving, so as things develop, so will the course- if there’s anything specific lots of you are asking for, i’ll add that in too! If you are already signed up to the Online Course, you’ll see the module appear on Monday evening (BST)!
The online course provides you with all the info you need to prepare for a positive birth, however sometimes having an opportunity to ask questions about your specific circumstances and talking through your own birth preferences can be hugely beneficial.
Our birth planning upgrade includes in a 1 hour Zoom Call (or Skype) with Megan, founder of birth-ed. Before the call you will be sent a comprehensive questionnaire, so that we can get the most from out session.
You are free to ask anything in the call, however please note that as with all courses with birth-ed, these calls do not replace medical advice from you healthcare provider. Calls are currently only available to women giving birth in the UK.
When you book your care you may have a clear idea of where you would like to have you baby. This may be at home, in a midwife led unit or a consultant led labour ward.
You may be undecided about your place of birth until further into your pregnancy when you have had time to research your options and have an understanding of how your pregnancy is progressing.
Whether you have a high risk or straight forward pregnancy, we can support you in your journey. If you choose a hospital birth, we can attend as a 2nd partner in labour to provide advocacy and practical support and reassurance. Due to insurance restrictions we will not be able to provide clinical care, your NHS midwife will be responsible for your care during labour.
If you choose a Homebirth, I am fully insured to cover all aspects of your care. I will care for you throughout your labour and will stay with you for a few hours after the birth to ensure you and baby are doing well.
We will help you understand your options, to enable you to make an informed choice and the choice which feels right for you!
