IN-HOME/ZOOM

THE welcome home

(0-8 weeks)

Congratulations

 

You’re here because you’ve recently welcomed home your newest family member and I TRULY couldn’t be happier for you! Becoming a Mother, that moment he/she is placed on your chest, or you first hold their hand, hear their first cry and witness their first breath…

It’s indescribable and a moment I will never forget! 

I’ll also never forget the moment I walked in the door with my newborn. The world stopped. I was filled with excitement but equally, fear, anxiety and a sense of the most weighted responsibility.  

If I, as a Midwife and NICU Nurse felt this way, I can only imagine the enormity you felt bringing home your dependent precious cargo.

The fourth trimester is challenging.
It’s a haze navigating the recovery.
It’s physically and mentally exhausting.
It’s the unknown.
It’s love.
It’s lonely but supported.
It’s beautiful chaos.
It’s unprepared for. 

Becoming a parent, there is no manual, no online course, no university degree. It’s the most demanding and important role you’ll ever fulfil, yet it has no training. Antenatal classes are often heavily focused on labour and birth, and rightly so, but who focuses on the fourth trimester and beyond?

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow, they will be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Just breathe, notice, study their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Meet perfection. Relish in the charms of the present”
