Hello, my name is Maeve Murray and I'm on a mission to give you the pre and postpartum support you really need.
Everyone wants to hold the baby, but who holds the mother?
Are you pregnant? Are you wondering how to ensure you have the best possible chance to rest recover and fall in love with your baby? Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to ooze into motherhood with confidence and feeling great? I can help you to make this a reality! We will plan your postpartum sanctuary together before baby is born. I will come to your home and take care of you after your baby is born, providing you with one to one care and support. I am a mother of 2 and a DONA trained postpartum doula, trained Cuidiu breastfeeding counselor, Slingababy sling consultant and Bebo MIa infant sleep educator. I am passionate about helping mothers and their families thrive in their postpartum period.
How much does a visit cost?
A four hour shift costs €100 and €25 an hour thereafter.
25 hours: €550
Please note there is a €7 travel charge per visit if traveling beyond 10km radius from Midleton.
hOW MANY VISITs WILL i NEED?
It’s totally up to you and what your needs are. I recommend visits of at least four hours. This will allow me to see the baby feed, sleep and awake. This will also allow me to offer lots of support to you and your family, by preparing nutritious meals or snacks, giving advice on slings and/or sleep, take care of some housework, and help the family identify and start to tap into their network of support. It will also allow the mother to have a break to bathe, relax, or connect with another child or partner.
SHOULD I MEET YOU BEFORE BABY ARRIVES?
Yes if possible. It can be really helpful to meet before your baby is born. I offer all my clients or potential clients a relaxed meeting either in person or via Skype at a time that suits you. In some cases a family may have specific goals or wishes that would require a session before baby arrives. This is something we’ll decide together with no obligation or expectation.
Will i need you for more than one shift?
It is up to you! Sometimes families opt for one shift, however most opt for at least a few days, a week or 2 weeks of support after their baby is born. My relationship with each client is unique. My goal, first and foremost, is to support the family and their wishes, however that may look.
