Have peace of mind knowing that your Midwife / Lactation Consultant is on hand to support you during those early days, weeks while you transition into motherhood. You can choose how and when your care takes place.
Whether its education, assistance or nurturing care from someone who is sensitive to your needs, you will feel supported whilst you settle in with your newest family member.
It is Caring Hands philosophy that women who are in charge of their health, who feel completely at ease and supported, have superior outcomes. It is my goal to empower you with the belief in your own mothering skills.

[Amanda] was very informative and patient and helped refer me on to get [my son] further treatment. Even when I was having a rough day, Amanda encouraged me to keep going. It was reassuring hearing her say that I was doing a good job and what I was going through was perfectly normal.
Caring Hands offers new mums reassuring and practical advice in the luxury of their own home! Amanda’s visits were much looked forward to, especially during those first 6 weeks. Parenthood is such a steep learning curve – it was wonderful to have some best practice, hands on, advice along the way!
[Amanda] was so quick in diagnosing [my daughters] lip and tongue tie. If she hadn't pick up on that I feel my breastfeeding journey would have already ended. It certainly hasn't been easy but with [Amanda's] support I hope I can continue to breast feed.
