6 Week Flying Start Postnatal Care Package
6 weeks of hands on care – gets your parenting off to a flying start.
“The well being of a woman after childbirth should carry the same importance as taking care of the needs of a newborn child“ ~ Author Unknown
As an experienced and well respected Birmingham doula with over 30 years of experience of supporting families, I provide a comprehensive 6 week package of support so that by week 6 you will feel confident and able to ‘fly solo’. Whether you are a first time, second time or third time parent, the prospect of life with a newborn can be a little daunting especially as many moms are being discharged from hospital with their babies very soon after birth.
There is so much bewildering and conflicting information around; let me help you to find your way through it all so that you feel happy and relaxed. I can be with you soon after your baby’s arrival and here are some examples of the support I can offer:
- Reassurance and gentle encouragement to help you find your feet as a new parent
- Infant sleep advice and support
- Emotional support (a listening ear and non-judgemental support)
- Preparation of light, nutritious meals to aid your recovery
- Care of baby while you rest, bathe etc.
- Feeding support to enable you to feel confident in your feeding choice
- Accompany you to appointments, mother and baby groups etc. so that you don’t have to face them alone
- Overnight support by prior arrangement.
If what you need isn’t on this list, I am very flexible so get in touch and let me know what support you do need!
Here is how the 6 weeks will be structured:
Week 1 – I will visit you Mon to Fri for 3 hours per day
Week 2 – I will visit you Mon to Thurs for 3 hours a day
Week 3 – I will visit you Mon to Weds for 3 hours a day
Week 4 – I will visit you Mon and Tues for 3 hours a day
Week 5 – I will visit you on Mon for 3 hours
Week 6 – I will visit you on Mon for 3 hours
The fee for this package is £1100 and includes local travel expenses

“I cannot thank Lorna enough for all of her help and support. As a first time mum I had severe anxiety and felt overwhelmed with taking care of my newborn. Lorna was there for us when we needed her the most. She would sit and talk to me for hours without passing any judgement and only offering advice when I requested it. She is very experienced and you can tell she is a natural with babies. She even helped us sleep train our little one! I highly recommend getting in touch with Lorna especially if you need a postnatal doula.”
If you require fewer hours, I offer postnatal care booked in blocks of 20 hours. These hours can be booked in either 3 or 4 hour blocks or overnight stays, 8.30am – 12.30pm, 1.30pm – 4.30pm or 9.30pm – 7.30am. The fee is £27 per hour (local mileage included).
