Why choose us?
We are all experienced homebirth midwives who have a wealth of knowledge and skill. We all have over 12 years 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 South West London and the M3 corridor. To find out if I might be the right midwife for you, give me a ring on 07866 899763 for an initial chat and to arrange a free consultation.
Midwifery has always been a huge passion of mine, and since qualifying 15 years
ago I have been extremely fortunate to be at so many lovely births, watching each
one’s beautifully unique (and sometimes challenging!) story progress and unfold.
I see pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period as one of the most vital
cornerstones in life, not just for the woman, but for the entire family and believe that
is why we need to get this beginning stage right! Having the priviledge to choose
who was present at my own two wonderful homebirth’s was incredibly important to me and I feel it makes such a difference receiving care from someone you know on a more personal level. It is so important to be cared for by someone you have
complete trust in, safe in the knowledge they know your needs and will be there to
advise and support you all the way.
Most of my career has been spent working in low risk midwifery led units and so I
have a strong passion for normality. This has included being a community midwife
and working in a dedicated Homebirth team. Waterbirth is a particular interest of
I am available to provide a full range of care throughout the antenatal period,
complete labour care either at home or as a birth support (if choosing to go into a
unit), as well as full support once baby has arrived. I am also available for
individual antenatal or postnatal appointments as well as breastfeeding support.
I cover East Dorset, West Hampshire, Bournemouth and Christchurch areas.

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 Tracey and Sharon, but do not book women as their primary midwife. Please contact me on 07584416096
