Full Independent Midwifery package
My philosophy is that I believe each woman has the right to give birth in the way that is right for her and her baby. I work with each woman to work out what is best for her in her individual circumstances. I have been attending home births as primary midwife since 2004 and have developed a range of skills and experience in supporting women wanting undisturbed home births so if this sounds like something that appeals to you then please contact me for a no-obligation discussion.
I work mainly as a home birth midwife in which case I am primary midwife for any client who books with me. I usually work with the backup of another IM depending on the geographical area.
If a client transfers to hospital I act as advocate either in person or (since new hospital visiting rules due to Coronavirus) via Zoom/WhatsApp or other online means.
I hold a space for a client to give birth in safety and as happily as possible and I aim to provide the following midwifery care:
Fees for full Independent Midwifery care, including birth:
I don’t do a birth-only package, so my IM package includes antenatal care, birth preparation, birth and postnatal care and comes to £5500 which is usually paid as a £2000 deposit on booking, then two further payments at 28 weeks and 36 weeks. I’m sorry but I can’t give discounts for late booking as my expenses for each birth are roughly the same, plus late booking tends to mean I’m doing the same amount of work in a shorter time. Payment plans are available for those who require longer to pay and I am happy to take card or Paypal payments.
