This is the time that you will want midwives you know and trust to care for you. My aim is to help and support you with your choices and to keep you and your partner informed of progress wherever you decide to birth.
I am happy to support you to birth at home, where I can practice in my full capacity as a midwife or be with you in hospital where my role will be as support and advocate as a qualified midwife.
If you are unsure of where you want to birth your baby, you have the flexibility of making your mind up as labour progresses to either birth at home or in hospital if you feel it is the right place for you.
Two midwives will attend the birth and you will be familiar with at least one of the midwives.
After the baby is born we will stay with you for a few hours to make sure that, baby has fed and you are happy for us to leave.
I bring all the the necessary equipment you would require for you labour and birth.
If you wish to have a water birth you will need to hire your own pool. I am happy to give you information on pool hire.
