Mal Soomessur

An Independent Midwife practising in London, Essex and Hertfordshire

A Practicing Associate of INDEPENDENT MIDWIVES ASSOCIATION based on the borders of East London and Essex - serving Hertfordshire, East, South, North and some parts of West London.

I offer a consultation visit at a time that suits you and your partner. This visit gives you the opportunity to discuss your requirements and decide if we could work together. I charge a nominal fee for this visit that is refunded if you book with me. If you decide that I am the right midwife for you, we will then arrange to meet for a booking visit.



Antenatal Care

All your antenatal care will be in the comfort and privacy of your own home at a time that suits you. Visits are usually 1-2 hours long. This allows us time to get to know each other and discuss issues that are important to you, to help prepare you and your partner for the progressing pregnancy, labour, birth and the challenges a new baby brings. 

The Booking Visit may be longer as we will be discussing your needs, general health and your pregnancy so that together we can formulate a care package to suit you.

Visits are generally monthly up to 28 weeks, fortnightly up to 36 weeks and weekly up to the birth. During each visit, with your permission, an antenatal check will be performed to ensure that both you and your baby are well. I work with a very experienced group of midwives who you will meet throughout  the antenatal period so that you get to know both of us equally to ensure you will be supported in labour and postnatal period by midwives you know and trust.

We are available 24/7 if women and their partners wish to contact us.
