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.
