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.

Thank you so much for all your care and support throughout my pregnancy. You have both looked after us so well. Your help and advice has ensured the pregnancy went smoothly and our baby arrived safe and well. I feel very lucky that i have shared this experience with both of you. My recovery has been so much better than with all the other babies and I think this is largely due to your care.
