ABOUT

Having a baby is without doubt one of the most exciting and precious experiences of your life… but it can also be one of the toughest, especially in those first few months. In fact, for many women the transition into motherhood can be a difficult one, fraught with uncertainty, physical exhaustion and emotional stress.

All too often we see new mums leaving hospital without sufficient postnatal support or advice, and as a result they quickly become swamped by feelings of inadequacy, doubt and despair.

Those feelings are normal – after all, babies are hard work! – but we at HUSH BAMBINO believe that with the right education and guidance, these feelings can be minimised… and perhaps even eliminated altogether.

Every baby – and every family – is different, which is why our experienced and qualified team of midwives is here to help make your transition as smooth as possible, whatever your needs.

We provide integrated services (including overnight care for newborns, daytime care as required, targeted assistance with feeding, settling etc, and help with post-birth recovery) that can be tailored to your specific requirements and/or unique circumstances. And your selected team member can be involved as much or as little as you like.

Lauren Downes and the team at HUSH BAMBINO are passionate about motherhood and committed to providing the best possible support for you and your baby. Using a mixture of empathy, encouragement and specialised skills, we aim to give you both a peaceful and happy start to the most important journey of your lives.
