Why choose us?
We are both experienced homebirth midwives who have a wealth of knowledge and skill. We many years of experience working outside of a hospital environment and have supported hundreds of women to have safe, calm and peaceful homebirths.
I see my midwifery qualification as one of the proudest achievements in my life, along with the birth of my five children! I have been a midwife since 2005 and feel hugely privileged to have been the guardian to many a new life coming into this world, including my seven gorgeous grandchildren. I am a passionate midwife who believes that every woman's journey is hers to own.
I am only here to guide and support her and to provide personalised care, tailored to the individual needs of each woman and her family. I feel truly blessed every time I am invited to share the wonderful journey into parenthood with a couple. Neighbourhood Midwives is an amazing organisation to be a part of and we all believe that every woman should have the choice to birth "her baby, her way" in a safe and calm environment.
I live near Southampton and cover Hampshire, M3 corridor, parts of Wiltshire and West Sussex. To find out if I might be the right midwife for you, give me a ring on 07725 840692 for an initial chat and to arrange a free consultation.
I was fascinated by pregnancy and birth as an teenager but it wasn’t until I was pregnant with my third daughter that I decided I would train to become a midwife.
I graduated from Bournemouth University in 2003 and have been a caseload midwife ever since, both in the NHS and the independent sector. I am still as passionate about midwifery as ever and it is my great privilege to share the journey through pregnancy, birth and into parenthood with the women and families I care for.
As clinical co-ordinator at Neighbourhood Midwives, I work closely with all the midwives within our organisation. My role includes supporting and advising them on their clinical practice, as well as being involved in the operational running & IT provision for Neighbourhood Midwives. I am also responsible for Information Governance and act as our Screening Co-ordinator. It is my aim to make the care we provide available to all women. I provide back up and support for Sharon, but generally, I do not book women as their primary midwife. Please contact me on 07900 951571
