1. Sorted Situation

(Six appointments)

36 weeks pregnant – First appointment

  • We will work together to understand your expectations of baby, breast/bottle feeding and life after baby arrives. A meet and greet to get a plan in place for the first few weeks.

1 week – Second appointment

  • Focusses on your first two weeks and adjusting to a bigger family. Can be taken in the second week if you prefer. Looking at feeding and settling techniques, gut winding and your health/nutrition.

3 weeks – Third appointment (month 1)

  • We will look at feeding and settling, how you and baby are going with working as a new family unit. Address growth spurts and upcoming changes. If breastfeeding, you’ll be finding a new pattern now.

6-7 weeks – Fourth appointment (month 2)

  • Your fourth appointment focusses on the transition from your midwife to Well Child Services (Plunket/Tamariki Ora). Sleep changes and education around normal baby behavior.

11 weeks – Fifth appointment (month 3)

  • The fifth appointment looks at ongoing growth spurts, changes in sleep patterns and expectations. Also discusses introduction of solids later on, and what to start thinking about before the 6 month mark.

15 weeks – Sixth appointment (month 4)

  • Our sixth and final appointment covers the heavily discussed four month sleep regression, starting solids and research behind when and why.
