Why Choose Me?

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 quicker and easier 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 will 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 delivered over 700 babies.  As you can imagine, there is very little that would surprise me or phase me when it comes to pregnancy, labour and birth, as I have seen it all.

As your Private midwife I will provide continuous support in a doula capacity but with significant clinical experience. I will not be involved in your clinical care which frees me up to support you and focus fully on your needs for maximum comfort calm and confidence.
