Post-natal support services

Helping you with sleeping, settling and breastfeeding your newborn

Imagine what the third trimester of pregnancy would be like for a baby: tightly cocooned in a warm, dark, comforting place.

Now imagine being thrust into a world of hunger pains, strange smells, hot and cold... it's quite a shock!

A newborn isn’t born being able to fend for themselves and still has much developing to do – they can’t escape if they sense danger or fear, go and find mum or dad for a cuddle, or chase mum for a feed when they're hungry… they completely rely on us for every single need.

A gentle adjustment into their new world in the form of a fourth trimester can make a huge difference to how baby feels and how mum and dad cope with parenthood.

A newborn isn't easy. Here's how we can help...
