twin waterbirth at home!

Just some of the feedback I have had from clients.  Many of them are happy to provide a personal reference if required - please ask if you would like to speak to one of them.

"The reason we chose an independent midwife was to get continuity of care - which is sadly lacking in the NHS.  Your ability to build relationships, not only with me but also with the rest of the family was fantastic and gave everyone confidence.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.  Even though the homebirth didn't work out as planned, having you as my advocate in the hospital was invaluable.  Looking back now, I can even say I enjoyed the whole experience!  (Sally and Nigel)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I could not have asked for a better experience - you (+ Sharon) worked brilliantly as a team and both Chris and I had utter confidence in your abilities and decision making". (Andrea and Chris)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"You and Sharon work well together and showed how professional you are.  I felt very safe and knew that you wouldn't allow complications to develop.  I trusted you completely.  Thanks for allowing it to be a memorable experience for Steve as well". (Teresa and Steve).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Totally brilliant, Taz and I were really confident with what to expect as well as being completely confident and trusting in your abilities" (Indy and Taz)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Our birth experience was so fantastic, we can't even complain about your time-keeping!" - (Claire and Ben V3BAC - at home!)

"Eleanor provided a quick and correct diagnosis when myself and baby Eleanor-Rain got thrush.  She contacted the GP for us and recommended the right medication, so it was dealth with immediately.  Provided good sources of information about how to avoid further problems with thrush. Overall, Eleanor was a wonderful midwife.  She exceeded our expectations and we are grateful to have been under her care". - (Imogen and Sebastian)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Even though we transferred to hospital, we still had a natural waterbirth which is what we wanted and we wouldn't have been able to do it without you" - (Emma + Rich)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Considering this was my first pregnancy, I felt that Eleanor really gave me the confidence that everything was progressing as it should.  I felt that I was the one who was ultimately making the decisions.  Kelvin was included all the way through and never felt pushed out or not made part of the decision process". (Jane and Kelvin)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Labour was fantastic.  I was only vaguely aware of you and Sharon and the sweet tea and words of encouragement - wonderful!  Fantastic care of Mark!" (Fiona and Mark)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"What can I say, you were my ideal midwife and I can't think of a single complaint or moment when I was dissatisfied. Thank you for giving me this life changing experience and we will see you in a few years for the next one!" (Jasmin - HBAC)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"We wanted to thank you for all your care and support throughout my pregnancy and during the birth of Bertie - and beyond. It meant so much to have him at home and your quiet, gentle and reassuring presence and care on the day was wonderful and I can't thank you enough" - (Sophie + Simon)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"You gave me huge confidence that we would be able to have Ruth at home - but equally, the confidence to know that if you said we needed to transfer, then we really needed to go. The NHS system simply did not confer this level of confidence at all - and you were worth every pound as a consequence. It removed a lot of the stress, waiting for Ruth to be born" - (Nicola + Mark)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you so much for looking after us with such care during my pregnancy, labour and Sam's first month. I will always remember the time fondly and you ensured that our experience was so positive. I will miss your visits and your perspective on midwifery issues has broadened my mind for my own future practice (as a midwife). Maybe one day I'll join you in the IMA!" - (Janet and Charlie)

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"We never felt that we couldn't call - you were always very friendly and helpful, and explained stuff in a very understandable way. We would highly recommend Eleanor and the whole independent midwife concept as a wonderful, personal experience. It's a massive benefit having someone supporting you, who you know and trust. We will definitely be calling you for baby number 2!" - (Polly + Justin)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you for all your care and support over the last eight months - we are all really going to miss you. I have really enjoyed this period of in my life and you played a large part in my confident attitude - thanks!" (Emma + Steve)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you so much for all your help and support during my pregnancy and labour, we really appreciate everything you have done for us. May you help and support many more women during their pregnancies and births" - (Sandy and Paul - HBAC)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you for all that you did throughout my pregnancy and also words cannot express the thanks for coming all the way to Bristol to support me. It was beyond your responsibilities as a midwife and both Gary and I appreciate all you did for us. I don't think I could have coped without yourself and Gary" - (Jackie and Gary - twins
