6 or12 WEEK PACKAGE
6 or 12 VISITS OVER 6 or12 WEEKS
Your newborninthecity midwife will visit in your home to run through last minute birth plans for mum and preparation for baby’s homecoming. This will include your feeding plans.
These visits will be in response to, and led by you and your babies needs. This will predominantly involve feeding and settling whether you are breast feeding or formula feeding. You may be aware that your newborn has to learn so much in the first three weeks.
As parents you will be surprised by the intensity of these changes. Rather than be overwhelmed ( even if your mum or nanny are helping) newborninthecity midwives will be your support and our visits will be practical. You will soon learn that you do know what to do for your newborn. You will have the ongoing daily support via email/txt so every small or silly question can be answered.
