Looking After Your Newborn
Looking After Your Newborn
Eek, I’m having a baby. What on earth do I do once it’s here. Whether that’s an excited eek or a petrified eek the reality is many new mums get so caught up on how the birth will be they forget they’ll go home with a newborn who looks to them for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
A lot of new parents (and experienced ones!) share that they feel overwhelmed at the thought of this; I can help you.
These sessions are delivered as 2 x 3 hour sessions.
These sessions are designed to help you manage the emotional overwhelm that can come with a new baby, and support you to stay calm, relaxed and in control.
The top four areas of concern are:
- Understanding your baby
Divine Hypnobirthing teaches The Wise Hippo programmes (FEDANT approved). Each of these sessions shares a video by one of the Wise Hippo experts and the session is facilitated by me with discussion.
The best time to learn all of the great information is BEFORE you’ve had your baby. That way you will know how to keep yourself in a good place, and feel confident about nurturing and loving your baby.
You’ll view a session delivered by an NCT breastfeeding expert, and receive a hypnosis for breastfeeding workbook and MP3 audio files.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR BABY
Don’t you just wish you could hear from a midwife and experienced mum? This is an information packed session covering all key topics relating to how best to take care of a newborn baby.
I’m not going to promise you a baby that’ll immediately sleep through the night but I can share the milestones to look out for, what you can do to support your little one. Two experts input into these sleep sessions.
You can’t nourish others from an empty cup. You need to support and take care of yourself now more than ever, and it will feel like you need to look out for everyone else first. This session is packed with manageable ways to self-care, and overcome the emotional overwhelm that often accompanies your new baby. We want you to feel calm, relaxed and in control.
Can I wait until after my baby is born?
You could, but chances are you’ll be too tired to absorb the info and support by then (plus you’ll have more stuff to carry around plus your little one!).
This final step is in fact so often left out of traditional antenatal education classes, but it is one of the most important, as it is about feeling confident with becoming a parent and taking care of your baby.
Some people will tell you “oh it will all come naturally”.
And you know that may have been the case when we lived in small villages and women had been seeing babies being born and raised from when they were a child. You might not even have spent any time with a baby until you birth your own.
Learning on the job is not for the faint hearted! Of course you have your own wisdom to tap into, your own knowledge and trial and error, but nothing beats preparation, insider info and support.
