Lovely feedback from one of our new mums this April, thank you so much for sharing with us Holly and many congratulations from all at Private Midwives:
“I am currently writing about my experience one handed while I also breastfeed my new baby, born 4 days ago in the comfort of my own home and with the support from my amazing private midwife Trish.
From the very beginning I knew I wanted to breastfeed but convinced myself I wouldn’t be able to do it. From the day I started speaking to my midwife about this whole new experience of having a baby I knew I was under the best care.
I had support with every question I had, no matter how small but feeding was one I was concerned about. I can’t believe here I am 4 days post birth and with the support of Trish I’m proud to say I am doing a great job.
Like many new mums, breastfeeding was only one of many worries that I managed to overcome with the detailed level of care from my private midwife that I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
I feel extremely lucky to have found Trish and the team and cannot thank them enough for what they have done. With the support of my private midwife I have now achieved an incredible and relaxed home birth, successfully started breastfeeding and I am currently being carefully cared for at home while I recover. To top all of that off, less than an hour after birth I was in bed with my husband and brand new baby, chatting to my midwife with a cup of tea and biscuit! How much better can it get?
There is nothing I would change about my time with private midwives and I hope writing this helps other families during the most incredible experience you’ll ever go through.”
