To offer support and information on breastfeeding, bottle feeding, baby carrying, infant sleep, nutrition, and baby massage are some of the topics that could be explored. Help preparing meals or tidy up while you rest are other complimentary options during a postnatal visit. Also, help with sibling bonding or keeping older children occupied while parents spend time with baby could be offered. Mothers and fathers need to be taken care of too!
Are you interested in having your child or children present at the birth but not sure how to co-ordinate or integrate them in the birth? As a sibling companion I will be there to help provide awareness and support to your little one during the birth. This service is especially useful for home births.
