Independent Midwifery Services
As an independent 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. Each antenatal and postnatal visit is conducted without rush and we finish when all your questions have been addressed. Another advantage of independent midwifery care is that you can call or message me at any time and you know I’ll respond.
Who is independent midwifery care for? this kind of care suits a range of people. Previous clients have included those who wish to have one-to-one care and develop a relationship of trust with their midwife and know that their wishes and needs will be respected; those have had previous trauma and want to feel more in control of their options for birth; and busy people who prefer to have their care at times convenient to them and which can involve family members if wished.
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 in your own home to discuss your options and whether my services are the right fit for you. If you do 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 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.
All care is usually carried out at the client’s home, though I often accompany clients if visits to hospital are necessary (for instance, appointments with consultant obstetricians and/or ultrasound scans depending on the reason.)
