Frequently Asked Questions

Why Choose FromBumps2Babies?

I am a highly regarded Senior Midwife with over 30 years of professional experience.  I believe strongly in positive birth and I am an experienced hypnobirthing practitioner and massage therapist.  I truly believe that where a woman feels confident and calm, the birth process is much gentler for her so this is what I promote and support.

I also believe that your partner has a fundamental role to play in the whole birth journey and that we can truly work together as a team to welcome your baby into the world.

I have worked as a locum midwife for the last 10 years in more than 15 hospitals across the UK and supported the birth of over 700 babies.  As you can imagine, there is very little that would surprise me or faze me when it comes to pregnancy, labour and birth, as I have seen it all.

What support will I receive?

As your Private midwife I will provide continuous support acting as your clinical advocate and helping you to make the right decisions to achieve the best birth possible.

I will not be involved in your ‘hands on’ clinical care but will work with your assigned midwife to support you during the birth process, as this allows me to focus fully on supporting your need for maximum comfort & calm.

What my clients say 

Linda was incredible from the moment we met her at her birth preparation classes. The classes helped us gain knowledge and confidence as a couple to prepare for birth, and this was why we chose to hire Linda to be our private midwife.

Part of the service included pregnancy massage, which helped hugely for relaxation and to learn about hypnobirthing which we practiced regularly.

Linda also supported us at hospital appointments, Making sure we were fully informed of facts and options at all times, to enable us to remain in control of our birth preparation. With Linda’s dedicated support, expertise, and hypnobirthing we achieved the water birth we wanted and an extremely special and positive birth experience, which we will be forever grateful for

There’s only one word to describe Linda and that is angel!

From the very first moment I walked into her home for a pregnancy massage I knew there was something special about her. Linda, you gave me the strength, confidence and guidance to bring my son into this world exactly how I wanted.

You took your time to get to know Indy and I and you’ve been our biggest advocate throughout this journey. I’m so thankful you came into our lives and helped bring Narayan safely into arms, quite literally!!
