Independent Midwifery Services
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.
This can be done in one of two ways. You can book with me directly in which case I would be working as an independent midwife, or you can book with a company called Private Midwives.
I am delighted to care for people from any background, any walk of life, any ethnicity, sexuality or gender identity. I will make every effort to create a relationship that feels culturally safe for you. I will do my best to help you to explore your options using all my skills and experience. I will advise where appropriate according to my professional judgment, but ultimately every choice whether in pregnancy, birth or beyond is yours. I will wholeheartedly support your choices.
Please do get in touch without obligation to discuss your wishes. I strongly believe that women should be able to choose the right midwife for them at this very important time in their lives, so I offer one no-charge consultation via Zoom to discuss your options and whether my services are the right fit for you, and whether to book directly with me or via Private Midwives. If you choose to have a consultation, there’s genuinely no-obligation to progress any further. I offer several packages of care as outlined below – please click through to explore which option might be best for you.
I look forward to hearing from you, and maybe walking together on this most exciting journey towards new parenthood.
Packages of Independent Midwifery Care
I offer three different packages of care – antenatal only, postnatal only, and full independent midwifery (IM) care which includes home birth or support at a hospital birth. I also offer birth preparation which can be booked entirely separately or is included as part of the antenatal care or full IM package. These are my Independent packages if you book directly with me, and the cost is outlined in the Fees section of this website. For booking my services via Private Midwives, please see their packages page for all the different choices. I hope that you find some combination that suits your needs.
All care is usually carried out at the client’s home, though I sometimes accompany clients if visits to the hospital are necessary (for instance, appointments with consultant obstetricians and/or ultrasound scans depending on the reason. In-person accompaniment may not always be possible but I can usually arrange to be on hand to communicate by WhatsApp, text or video link.)
