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.

Giving birth with Siobhan and Sarah by my side is an experience I wish for every woman to have.
They are nurturing and warm yet highly knowledgeable and professional. The really special thing about them is their ability to deeply connect with the mothers they work with resulting in an open, safe and caring relationship where you know you are well looked after. You feel their genuine care and astute attention to every detail regarding your birth; you can totally relax at this sometimes stressful time knowing you are in safe hands. They believe in you and your ability to birth naturally, whilst knowing specialised tricks of the trade to smooth out any rough points such as natural induction tips and how to beat post-natal depression! I loved being tucked into bed by them with a cup of tea after birth and really appreciated the hectic times post birth when they would turn up with food!! I really could go on and would be happy to give more details to anyone interested. Their care is worth so much more than they charge and not comparable in any way to a birth with the NHS. I had a safe, simple and gentle homebirth and now have a relaxed, calm and beautiful baby girl. I’m forever grateful to them, not only for their care and expertise but also their genuine love xxx
