Platinum Support Package
Postpartum Doula Support is a great addition to any birth support service.
This helps out families as they settle in to the 4th trimester with their newborn baby at home.
Maybe you're a first time parent, have multiples, little or non local family support, you need extra support with feeding your baby, or perhaps you have a history of anxiety or depression and feel that the extra support is just what you need.
No matter what your reasoning is I am here to give you a helping hand in those first special weeks with your beautiful newborn.
It can be a stressful time, but it doesn't have to be!
• All of the Full Package + Newborn Package.
• As a gift to you a beautiful Mums and Bubs pack. All natural and no nasties.
• A saving of $200 when booked as a package upfront.
• Postnatal visits to be used within 2 weeks of coming home from hospital or from birth if birthing at home.
Last Minute Package
Have you got to the final weeks in your pregnancy and discovered that you really could do with that extra support?
Found out your “care giver” really isn’t that caring after all?
Or just want to have the comfort of knowing you have a trained birth support person there just for you?
Then the Last minute package is what you need.
This package is aimed at women in their 37th week and onwards.
I will aim to meet with you once in the time prior to you going into labour, if this doesn’t happen I will meet you at your chosen birthing place and support you there until your baby is safely in your arms and you are both tucked into bed.
