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. I have spent the majority of my career attending home births, but also provide support for women planning a hospital or birth centre birth.
I was clinical co-ordinator at Neighbourhood Midwives for over 5 years, which involved working closely with all the midwives within the organisation. My role included supporting and advising them on their clinical practice, as well as being involved in the operational running & IT provision for Neighbourhood Midwives. I live in Southampton and cover Hampshire, parts of Dorset, Wilts and West Sussex. Please contact me on 07900 951571 for an initial chat and to book a free consultation.
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.
