Breastfeeding and Postnatal Support
Having a new baby can be a stressful and anxious time, Eileithyia offers one to one support in your own home to help you and your partner learn some of the techniques of life with a new born. This includes breastfeeding support as some women can find learning how to position and latch their new born difficult and just need some assistance to make feeding easier and more successful. With this individualised approach, Eileithyia will work with you and your partner to allow you both to enjoy the first few days as a new family.
Postnatal support is available to all women who have just recently had a baby.
We are very aware of the time constraints faced by community midwives and the impact this has on the service they can provide to you and your partner.
Our service is there to support you and your partner in the early days and to make the transition to parenthood as easy and stress free as possible.
Whether you need support with breast or bottle feeding, routines or just need questions answered, Eileithyia is there to supplement the care from your community midwife and empower you and your partner as you learn parenting techniques.
