Welcome to BabyBloomers

Welcome to BabyBloomers, Pretoria! If you're on this site you are probably a new mom or dad-to-be. Congratulations! This is an exciting new chapter of life. As a health professional and mother of 4 children (including twins) I know what it feels like; exciting but daunting! 

I love helping parents grow in confidence as their knowledge of birth, breastfeeding and early parenting grows both before and after the baby is born. Let us know how we can help you on your journey as a parent...

Postnatal Home Visits

The first few weeks after the birth of a baby are usually very overwhelming and require significant adjustment. Many countries in Europe as well as the United Kingdom provide a series of 'Postnatal Home Visits' to assess how Mom & Baby are adjusting and what areas they may need help in. ‘BabyBloomers’ provides a similar service.   Many families find that even one home visit is enough to boost their confidence & promote continued breastfeeding in the first ‘bumpy’ weeks. A similar assessment can be done at ‘BabyBloomers’ depending on a mother’s flexibility with travelling.

Perhaps your breastfeeding experience with your first child didn’t get off to a great start and you’d like to plan a better start with the next baby, or you’re close to your due date and missed childbirth preparation classes?
