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

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Sarah, thanks to her knowledge, wisdom and experience my two children have had the best start in life. She guided me through two pregnancies and births and then supported my husband and I in the first weeks of their lives.

Sarah helped me to create positive birth plans and she gave me the confidence and the know how to use these plans while I was in hospital before, during and after the birth. During my second birth I could often hear her voice in my head guiding me and encouraging me to trust my instincts and do what was best for my baby and I. So it is thanks to Sarah that I had almost constant skin to skin with my babies for the first days and nights of their lives and I was able to successfully breastfeed both of my babies and not suffer any complications. I firmly believe that this is why they were both happy and healthy babies.

During my first pregnancy I was extremely anxious and Sarah has helped me to gradually overcome my fears and she has given me the tools that I needed to become a very happy and confident mother of two. I really don’t know what we would have done without her. C and C.
