Postnatal Support

In addition or as a separate package to the Birth Support, in a postpartum role, I attend to the new family at home after the birth. The journey isn’t over once baby has arrived, it is just starting! As the African proverb says, “it takes a village to raise a child” and today most of us are lacking the support and network to strive as new parents, especially in big cities where we are often fare from our own roots.
I’ll visit you in the comfort of your own home, usually during the first twelve weeks, but it can also be anytime during the first 6 months.

I am not a guest, distant relative or a visitor coming to meet the new baby. With me, don’t worry about:

  • washing your hair
  • pulling yourself together if you’ve been crying all morning
  • getting out of your tracksuit
  • preparing tea when I arrive
  • cleaning the pile of dishes in the sink

Once baby is born, the attention of the caregivers (and anyone really!) is all about this little star… My role is centred around ‘mothering the mother’: taking care of YOU with unconditional support and evidence-based information so you can feel present mentally, physically & emotionally for the journey into parenthood.

Most of us know that to best support others, we first need to be well ourselves (the famous “put the oxygen mask on you first before you help others”) so sometimes my role will also be to remind you about YOU!


When we become a parent, we all get overwhelmed by well-meaning advise and tips from family, friends, books, podcasts, youtube videos and Instagram accounts…. My non-judgemental and reassuring presence will just give you the additional confidence your might need to empower yourself and ‘know’ deep down that you ARE already providing the best care for you baby!

I will also offer support on :

  • establishing successful nursing
  • caring for baby while you take a nap or some self-care time (yep I am talking rose petal bath with candles, music and a book!)
  • cooking nourishing meals to replenish your body and soul
  • helping with small house chores (laundry, tidying,…)
  • attending to the needs of other family members or siblings
  • enlisting support from your friends and relatives & organising a meal train
  • discussing sleeping routines
  • practicing baby massage, wrapping, carrying
  • helping with the logistics of leaving the house with a baby (and sometimes a toddler!) for medical appointments or grocery shopping
  • debriefing your birth experience together (a very crucial point… whatever your experience was)
  • Ect.

I have studied Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga, Aromatherapy, Nutrition and Ayurveda. I integrate this knowledge globally in my practice as a Doula.

The details of my work will vary from family to family, because each family’s situation is different and unique.

she knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it

Amelie’s presence was totally invaluable. I don’t think my labour would have been so successful if she wasn’t there. She knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it. […]. She was the one person who stayed with us throughout the entire labour while midwifes changed shifts. Read more “she knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it”
