Having a baby is a life-changing event for the whole family. I place enormous value on the support I am able to offer. I am very keen and happy to involve important family members whenever appropriate, especially siblings.

I visit daily after the baby is born until you and your partner feel confident in your choice of feeding and caring for your new baby. As this is a very emotional time, you will have my support for four weeks. These visits allow time to discuss issues that concern you to help you build your confidence as new parents.

When you start feeling confident, visits are reduced with your consent. I will be available to visit or chat to you on the phone at any time if you have any concerns.

When the time comes to discharge you, I will ensure we have discussed all the memorable events we went through and give you a copy of your notes.
