Nicky Grace

Experience the benefits of one-to-one midwifery care with an experienced independent midwife
during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

I’m Nicky Grace, an experienced independent midwife supporting gentle home births within an hour’s drive of my home in Nottingham. Pregnancy and birth are some of the most significant times in your life, and I want to help this to be the best and safest experience possible.

If you would like to work with a midwife who will honour your power as a birthing woman, who will be present alongside you as you birth your baby, then I may be the right midwife for you.

Postnatal Care

The early hours, days and weeks following birth are some of the most significant in any new family’s life. I love supporting clients with feeding and baby care.

Meet Nicky Grace

As an independent or private midwife, I am able to offer a range of midwifery services to clients on a private basis. This means that your midwifery care is carried out by a known and trusted midwife in the comfort of your own home at a mutually convenient time.

Kind words from clients

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the support, care and love throughout our pregnancy, birth and after birth of our baby boy… you are totally AMAZING and we are very lucky to have found you and have you in our lives during a very important part of our journey…we hope you are able to join us on special events to continue to watch our boy grow up, he needs to know the fantastic person who helped his parents all the way for his safe arrival. We couldn’t imagine this journey without you.

– Love Nim & Rik xxx

We had 2 fantastic births thanks to you and your knowledge & support (and obviously the efforts of my hardcore better half)
I did the easy bit and just watched.

My previous births were traumatic and I needed to find someone who would support a gentle approach. My birth choices would not have been possible with the NHS and the connection and trust that I built with Nicky allowed me to have a peaceful but powerful birth.

– Jane Legg

As a midwife Nicky is amazing. She walked alongside me through 2 challenging pregnancies, always supporting my choices whilst still holding her professional standards high. She gave me confidence in my ability to make my own decisions about what I wanted for the births even though I was going against standard medical advice in my choices. She was such a part of it all for me and for my family too, always including the children in ante-natal visits and making it fun for them. I think my experiences of the two pregnancies and births would have been very different without Nicky supporting me all the way through. She is wonderful. You will not regret making her a part of the circle of support surrounding you at this very important time in your life.
