testimonials

Classes provide a safe space to exercise whilst exploring your pregnancy and your feelings.

LushTums teachers are very knowledgable and classes are always tailored to everyone’s needs.

I’d highly recommend doing your antenatal education with LushTums. It far surpassed all the other courses we also did.

I did both the classes and Antenatal Education to prepare for birth and am so grateful I did. The breathing was amazing and totally got me through it all.

Not only have I loved the pregnancy yoga an postnatal yoga classes, I am now loving the Women’s Yoga. So nice to have an understanding space for me to continue to explore yoga.

I’m back again for pregnancy number 3! My much needed bit of time out each week. Highly recommend.

Postnatal Doula Services

"Postnatal doula support gives women confidence and increases breastfeeding success, as well as reducing the risk of postnatal depression" - Mothering The Mother by Klaus, Kennell & Klaus, 1993

As well as offering antenatal and birth support at LushTums we are now also offering postnatal doula care. Postnatal doula work involves supporting the family after the baby is born as you adjust to your new roles as parents.  

You know the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child?” Well, generally we see women take on so much on their own nowadays they consequently feel overwhelmed and exhausted as a result.

This is where the postnatal doula comes in!  You can’t get this time back, it is precious, and your health and well-being is crucial for you to be able to enjoy this phase and care for not only your baby but yourself as well.


Postnatal doula work involves :

  • Actively listening and allowing mum to talk through her birth experience, explore all her feelings and make sure she has space and time to reflect and let the whole experience sink in.

  • Support, help and signposting with breastfeeding problems.

  • Picking up groceries and cooking nutritious meals ( lets face it - the last thing a new mum feels like doing is cooking!)

  • Light cleaning, dishes, refreshing/ watering plants.

  • Holding baby or taking baby for a walk while mum naps,bathes or just has some time.

  • Playing with older siblings while mum is caring for baby or resting.


Fee: £20ph, £35 for 2 hours, £90 for 3 x 2 hour sessions per week. For any questions, inquiries, or a friendly chat please dont hesitate to get in touch: kim.pehrsson@lushtums.co.uk / 07861926441
