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.



Philosophy of Care

I believe that continuity of care and a trusting relationship with your midwife can enhance the experience of pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks after baby's arrival. This is a valuable building block for parenting. I place enormous value on the support I offer to women and their families to help with the smooth transition to parenthood.

For most women, pregnancy and childbirth is a normal physiological event. This should be a time when you are empowered to feel confident, in your body's ability and the choices you make for you and your baby. 

I am committed to evidence based practice and I actively support informed choice. I will help you explore a range of available options, by referring to the latest research when appropriate, so that you can decide what is best for you, your partner and your baby.

I offer a free consultation visit so that you can decide if we could work together.

I offer a bespoke package of care. Read more about Antenatal Care, Labour and Postnatal Care.
