*Virtual Postpartum planning sessions*
(coming soon) $120
Would you like to feel supported and prepared for the arrival of your baby? Do you feel somewhat anxious at the thought of being a new mama during these complex and uncertain times of a global pandemic?
A postpartum planning session, tailored to your own unique needs can help you feel less overwhelmed and help you feel equipped mentally, physically and practically to care for yourself and your baby.
What do you get?
A virtual 90 min face-to-face call during which we brainstorm a range of topics that can be helpful to consider in the postpartum period. This might include (but not limited to) managing visitors, meals & snacks to have on hand, exploring what you need to feel good, what can be outsourced & delegated and guidance around building your village and asking for help. I’ll also email you a copy of the plan in advance and a resource list of relevant support services
These planning sessions are a wonderful gift for expectant friends or family. We may need to be physically distant from others but we can still be supported, cared for and connected.
*Pre and postnatal support (in-home visits currently unavailable)*
Packages available upon request to include what’s important to you:
*Cooking nourishing postpartum foods
*Breastfeeding support (current evidence-based)
*Support in building your village
*Advice on cleaning/washing routines using the safest, lowest tox cleaning methods for your family
*Baby and/or toddler proofing home audit
*Help creating optimal safe sleeping spaces using current evidence-based information (including bedsharing/co-sleeping)
*Planning and setup of low-tox nursery including advice on what’s really essential and more importantly what not to buy
*Advice and recommendations on acquiring items that may be required – samples of smaller items such as swaddles, wraps and carriers, cloth nappies, wipes, bottles, dummies etc are also available to help you navigate through the (often completely new-to-you) world of baby-goods!
*Decluttering and organising (in-home visits currently unavailable)*
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you have areas of your home that need to be simplified, less cluttered and more efficiently organised? Let me help you get those spaces working so you can enjoy the time you spend in them – be it your kitchen, wardrobe, laundry, bathroom or children’s rooms. Sustainable, low-tox and reusuable options are my go-to during this process. I aim to use what you already own or can access easily, help responsibly dispose of what you no longer need and support you in acquiring less in the future to avoid the continuing cycle of acquiring/purging/acquiring.
Hands-on support and guidance
Initial consultation and assessment (3hrs) $275
Hourly rate thereafter $75 p/h
Included: In-home assessment where we will discuss what works and does not work for you, what you hope to achieve and how I can help you move towards that goal. I’ll guide and support you in the decision-making process, suggest how to best utilise your spaces and organise your belongings efficiently in a way that makes sense to you. At the end of the session I will take away any goods for donation and also offer advice on removal of other items if required. This is followed-up with a written plan of action with recommendations tailored to your specific needs and goals. Packages available upon request.
**All of this is done within the ethos of mindful consumption. Encouragement will always be to borrow, reuse, hire or buy second hand (if safe) before purchasing new. Babies come with few needs (food, warmth and shelter within a nurturing, responsive environment) but a lot of ‘stuff’ if we are not careful!
