My name is Lydia, I'm a Birth and Postnatal doula fully registered with Doula UK. I'm Original from Germany and moved to West Sussex whereI live with my children and husband in East Grinstead.
I have been working as a doula for over 8 years and have supported parents during child birth and in the weeks after their baby was born.
The first weeks after the birth are crucial for the mum to recover from giving birth and bond with her new baby.
Often these wonderful first weeks can be a challenging time. As a postnatal doula, I’ll come in and focus on your needs as a new mother. I’ll be able to offer you a helping pair of hands, emotional support and non-judgemental suggestion, giving you the time to enjoy those precious first few weeks - whether that means you spending time with baby while I get on with all the ‘stuff’ that builds up in house, or taking baby while you get some precious ‘me time’.
I am happy to do whatever is needed which often includes
- preparing light food for you or and children,
- baby/sibling care,
- food shopping,
- take you to appointments
eg: the baby health clinic, breast feeding support group,
- School run and homework support,
- listening and supporting you as you make the transition in to motherhood,
- support and signposting with newborn care including feeding
- support for parents with twins and more baby's
