Postnatal Care


Anna Todd PhotographyI can come to your home and help you with this enormous transition.

Our culture focuses so much on the birth but for most women – caring for the baby is often a time of great challenge. Women require a lot of support in this time. For most they are sent home from hospital on day 3 with the promise of a follow up visit from their local early childhood nurse sometime in the first few weeks. Women require a lot of support with breastfeeding, and how to attune themselves to their newborn. A lot of information provided is not helpful and women can easily become confused and overwhelmed.

Medicare and some private health fund rebates apply to some of my fee.

 

“The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards.
It is the year of travail – when the soul of a mother must birth the mother inside her.
The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth;
these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but no less significant than the event of childbirth, perhaps even more sacred.”
