Private midwives are fully qualified, registered midwives who have undergone the same level of midwifery education and training as their NHS colleagues. The difference is simply that we have chosen to provide care outside of the NHS giving women and their families one-to-one, women-centred care. As experts in providing care, we are able to recognise any deviation from the normal and can refer appropriately should this be required.

Having Cambridge Midwives support me through my pregnancy was the best decision I made. Siobhan and Sarah made it plain sailing for us, no matter what difficulties my case involved. I felt supported, cared for and respected – the opposite of how I felt with my previous care options. The post birth support was invaluable. We wouldn’t be such a happy family without Cambridge Midwives.
