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

Giving birth with Siobhan and Sarah by my side is an experience I wish for every woman to have.
They are nurturing and warm yet highly knowledgeable and professional. The really special thing about them is their ability to deeply connect with the mothers they work with resulting in an open, safe and caring relationship where you know you are well looked after. You feel their genuine care and astute attention to every detail regarding your birth; you can totally relax at this sometimes stressful time knowing you are in safe hands. They believe in you and your ability to birth naturally, whilst knowing specialised tricks of the trade to smooth out any rough points such as natural induction tips and how to beat post-natal depression! I loved being tucked into bed by them with a cup of tea after birth and really appreciated the hectic times post birth when they would turn up with food!! I really could go on and would be happy to give more details to anyone interested. Their care is worth so much more than they charge and not comparable in any way to a birth with the NHS. I had a safe, simple and gentle homebirth and now have a relaxed, calm and beautiful baby girl. I’m forever grateful to them, not only for their care and expertise but also their genuine love xxx
