"As independent midwives we respect and honour a woman's ability to give birth in a supportive and trusting environment"
We are especially skilled at enabling women to birth at home as this is where the majority of women who book with us choose to have their baby.
It is evident that for many women this is where they feel most confident and where the process of birth is able to unfold in a calm, unhurried and peaceful atmosphere. The evidence is clear that for most women experiencing a normal pregnancy, this is the safest environment in which to labour and give birth. This is true for first and subsequent babies.
Our experience includes caring for women who wish to labour and birth in water, women who plan to give birth vaginally following a caesarean section (VBAC), we welcome those women who have had a difficult or traumatic previous experience whether in pregnancy, labour or the post natal period.
We are all mothers ourselves, members of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), the Independent Midwives Association (IMA) and the Association of Radical Midwives (ARM).
