You will receive regular, tailor-made appointments following the birth of your baby. The standard pattern of visits is frequent in the first week and the length of the appointment is variable, depending on the needs and feeding support required. The frequency of visits gradually decreases up to 28 days, when we will say good-bye.
A typical post natal schedule will include home visits lasting 60-90 mins on Day 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13,15,18,21, 25, and day 28, with more visits if you are struggling

During the postnatal period we will be on hand to guide you through all aspects of new parenting, and can deal with any concerns you may have.

We will remain on call for you, throughout this time, ensuring that you remain confident in the transition to parenting.

One off appointments can be made if your routine postnatal care does meet your requirements e.g. breastfeeding support. These are subject to availability.krista-baby

I can wholeheartedly say that my homebirth was magical and that was all down to having Siobhan by my side. From the moment we met, Siobhan felt like a good friend – I could talk to her about anything. Siobhan is caring, fun, personable, knowledgeable, a true professional and always at the end of the phone. As a first-time mother, pregnancy is fear of the unknown. It can be a time of stress and deep concerns for you and your partner. Siobhan reassured us and removed all those fears at every step – the months leading up to the big event, during the birth and, just as importantly, the weeks after.
