Homebirth

Becky will support you throughout your labour and birth. A relationship of mutual trust is built up during the antenatal period when continuity of carer is provided and at Cambridge Midwives we continue this care through labour and birth, making this special time feel more personal and private. Such care further empowers parents, helping them to fully prepare for their new arrival. In addition, research has shown that women are more relaxed, need less pain relief and labour more efficiently when attended by a midwife whom they know.

At Cambridge Midwives, we support homebirth, believing women feel more in control when in their own homes. Indeed, fathers often report feeling more involved following a homebirth. We will also prepare your home for the births.
Here is an article written by one of our lovely clients about her recent homebirth –  http://www.joyfulbirthbaby.com/baby-sofias-birth-story/

If a couple choose to have their baby within the hospital setting,NHS midwives will encourage them to stay at home for as long as they feel able. In this situation, Becky will support you while at home, then continue this support and act as your advocate within the hospital settin6g, either within the Midwifery Led unit or Obstetric Led Unit of your chosen NHS hospital. Likewise, if you opt for an elective Caesarean we can act as your advocate in the Delivery Unit or pre and post theatre.

 

Siobhan and Sarah, I am not really sure where to start…! when mum suggested I should have an independent midwife, I said I didn’t think I needed one as I didn’t want a fuss made. However talking through all the details it became apparent that this was actually a wonderful idea that we would have two people who knew the ropes to guide us through this adventure. When we met you. our decision was made immediately to take you on…I can truly say I am not quite sure what we would have done without you and no matter what i say I cannot thank you enough. …The support you both gave us throughout was incredible with your kick arse'(!!) attitude, mothering skills, stories, humour and practical advice have all made this a good experience…who know when the dust settles we will be calling you again!
