I have a doula mum in Pmb tandem feeding her toddler and her new baby. It works beautifully and her new baby gets a better drink when the toddler is nursing.  Her toddler is not hurt by the fact that the new baby has taken over the breasts that she enjoyed and therefore we have a balanced happy toddler.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
