After baby is born, our midwives and support workers are here to help you adjust to life with a new baby, helping with feeding and baby care as well as caring for mum both physically and emotionally. We are here to support you.
After baby is born, the joy and excitement can often be mixed with a lack of sleep and worrying about your new responsibilities as a parent. We are here to help and support you throughout this time. Your midwife will visit you in hospital and/or at home and complete the physical checks for you and baby, assist with feeding and also provide emotional support.
If you are having problems breast feeding, we can put together an intensive breast feeding support package for you. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs and how we can help you.

Intensive Breast Feeding Support
If you are having problems breast feeding, we can put together an intensive breast feeding support package for you. Our intensive breast feeding support package includes daily visits for 7 days to support you in establishing breast feeding.
We want to reassure you that all our midwives and those working under our PRISM scheme, are fully insured and are here to care for you, as we are aware that some 'independent midwives' no longer have clinical indemnity insurance for births.
