Why choose a Private Midwife?
Extra Care alongside the NHS
A private midwife can offer you extra care alongside your NHS care if you feel like the services are overstretched. This can be in the form of individual antenatal classes, one-off consultation to discuss a care-related personal matter, a postnatal home visit, etc.
Many private midwives develop additional skills and propose complementary services for pregnant women which they think can increase women wellbeing and therefore the likelihood of a more positive experience of motherhood. Check my services for what I have to offer
A private midwife has no time constraints therefore when you meet her there is no rush and you can spend the time needed to discuss your care, how you are coping, ask questions etc. A private midwife will give you evidence-based information to help you make an informed choice for your pregnancy and your baby. She will support your choices and act as your advocate with other health professionals
Continuity of Care
A private midwife will provide you with continuity of care. You can develop a trusting relationship during pregnancy. You will feel more reassured with a midwife you know and who knows you during the birth of your baby. In the postnatal period, you will feel that you can ask for help and advice when you need to.
