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.



Postnatal Care

Having a baby is a life-changing event for the whole family. I place enormous value on the support I am able to offer. I am very keen and happy to involve important family members whenever appropriate, especially siblings.

During the first week I will visit daily and after that as needed until you and your partner feel confident in your choice of feeding and caring for your new baby. As this is a very emotional time, you will have my support for four weeks. These visits allow time to discuss issues that concern you and help you build your confidence as new parents.

When you start feeling confident, visits are reduced with your consent. I will be available to visit or chat to you on the phone at any time if you have any concerns.

I will ensure we have discussed all the memorable events we went through and give you a copy of your notes, prior to discharging you from my care.
