Are you expecting a baby, or have you recently welcomed a new baby and are looking for some support whilst you adjust to life with your newborn?
I’m Annie and I’m a baby portrait photographer and postnatal doula. In 2022 I completed my doula training with the BirthBliss Academy to provide postnatal support from birth up to around 3 months old.
I cover the South Manchester area including Altrincham, Timperley, Hale, Sale, Brooklands, Urmston, Chorlton, Cheadle, Lymm, Knutsford, and Wilmslow.
A postnatal doula is a non medical person that provides support to you in your home.
Studies show that the benefits of additional help following birth can include increased self confidence in looking after and adapting to the changes of having a new baby, increased breastfeeding success, more time to bond with your baby, rest and regain your energy.
Being a parent myself I understand how important support during this time can be. The support I provide can be varied and flexible dependant on your needs but may include:
- Assisting with routine baby care such as bathing, nappy change, calming techniques
- Help with infant feeding
- Emotional support
- Caring for your baby whilst you get some rest or have a shower etc
- Light housework and laundry
- Drinks and light meals such as bringing you a sandwich, and snacks
- Help with older siblings
- Running errands such as grocery shopping
- Walking the dog
I offer a free initial consultation in person at your home so we can meet and you can find out more about my services and ask any questions.
For your peace of mind I am insured and DBS checked.
Price: £20 per hour (minimum booking of 2 hour slot).
Hours available: Up to 3 hours a day, subject to availability.
