Early Days Postnatal Support
Early days phone/virtual support is provided by me, Louise. I am a qualified nursery nurse, birth doula, prenatal and postnatal therapist, baby massage instructor and mother of 2 plus a husband! I wish this was available for me when I had my first. I needed to tell someone about the whole experience, the high or the low! I needed someone on MY side, so thats what I plan to provide for you.
Share with me your feelings, trauma, highs, challenges and sleeplessness of it all, I am here to listen – and give you helpful direction where appropriate or wanted. You are most certainly NOT on your own. If you have your baby early or had a traumatic birth, please reach out, I am here to help, and it is my pleasure. How does it work? well, once booked, keep in touch around your baby's birth so I know when to expect to be available for you, Then text ahead to book a time in the near future or same day if its more urgent. I'll be available to chat with you 9.30am – 10pm 7 days a week. For the types of hand outs and blogs of informaiton you'll get, see the subjects below:
Parenting support, hacks, tips etc

One to one home visit
A lot of parents worry about how to hold their baby when bathing them and have many questions. One to one visit with Louise (Zoom for now) choosing subjects including things like holding, bathing, dressing/undressing, changing for example.
A lot of parents worry about how to hold their baby when bathing them and have many questions about how to ‘top and tail’ when to bath, how to bath, how to ensure baby is warm etc. Louise is a qualified Nursery Nurse and is used to bathing new-born’s. In this walk-through Louise will help you prepare your space, top and tail, bath and dry your baby with little tips that will make all the difference to both your experiences. Its recommended around day 20 is ideal for your baby’s first bath, but if you don’t want to wait that long, or you want the information but don’t want to do it alongside Louise, you can record the demo and watch it back at your leisure.
Baby Massage This is all about your baby’s development through massage and movement. We also include tips and massage for winding, umbilical hernia, preference of head on one side or tummy gripes. Much more info and benefits on my website www.mindbodyandbump.co.uk.
Pelvis & Posture Course One to one zoom call and short videos and handouts to give you the information you need at this time.Restoring your core and tummy muscles encourages you to start your postpartum movements and breathing techniques as soon as possible, to aid recovery even if you have had a C-section. Your pelvis needs your immediate attention and there are quite few things you will want to include in your day and those you want to avoid. M.E.E Mummy Essential Exercises are a super way to start looking after yourself and can be practiced throughout the day at the same time as caring for your baby and during those mini breaks.
Yoga Babes - Mum & Baby Postnatal Yoga From 6-8 weeks Post birth YogaBabes begins, which many mothers and babies enjoy all the way to the crawling phrase. The focus during the class switches from mother to child. Even if the baby is asleep during the class you will be given postnatal exercises that are essential to your pelvic and spinal health and lots of tips on posture. The moves for the baby are great for their development, and they love the combination of the rhymes and movement.
Babes Mums What’sApp group Support & friendship at the touch of a button. Lots of postnatal mums in the same boat with Louise and Tara available in the group to give our professional support for those more evidence based questions.
If you are a stay at home dad, carer or grandparent, we have a Parent’s & Carers WhatsApp group you can join instead, just let us know.
Monthly Afternoon Tea. This is held at Louise’s house in Maidenhead, once a month. There is a lovely welcoming, large space in which you are welcome to.
Feeding your baby is welcome, bottle, formula or breast is all equally supported, encouraged and accepted. There is no judgement here. You can use the toilet too! I don’t have any changing facilities here, but you’re welcome to change in a quieter corner. Dont worry if you've not mastered feeding your baby yet, we were ALL been learners once and will give your space or help out.
This is purely sociable, so it’s a relaxed, fun environment you can meet other mums, share and swap contact in your own time. There’s no agenda so topics are organic.
If you’re shy, please don’t worry! I was painfully shy as a new mum, so I’d like to think I know that walking into a room of people I don’t know is petrifying! That’s why its in a homely environment and I will introduce you around and look after you. If you have any nappies or small baby equipment in nearly new or new condition and you wish to offer it to other mums, please bring it with you.
There is off-street car-parking available.
Louise provides this opportunity because she cares, so please be respectful to her space and what she does for her job. We respectfully request that you don’t share other classes that compete with Bumps to Babes.
