‘Thank you for all your help and care throughout my pregnancy. In particular, your company and coaching for all of my many consultant appointments. You made me stay calm and feel much more in control. You said to choose your battles wisely and to collect all available information then make up your mind up. Hopefully advice I will continue to implement throughout my life. You were fundamental in us achieving the home water birth we had dreamed about. Without question if we hadn’t had the support from you and Siobhan throughout the whole process and particularly for the birth I don’t doubt we would have ended up in hospital very probably having another c section. During the birth you kept me calm and made me feel in control whilst unobtrusively carrying out observations and gently encouraging me. It‘s a shame everyone doesn’t have a Sarah and Siobhan. Thank you.‘

‘Don’t know where to begin as words can’t quite describe our gratitude to Cambridge Midwives. When we booked several months into pregnancy, I never even remotely comprehended how crucial it would be for all of us. Birth itself was of course important, but all the limitless support, words of wisdom, calming down the inevitable fears, loads of super useful tips for weeks before and after birth are even more important.. But above all that is Siobhan’s incredible personality: she radiates calm, confidence, motherly feel. If we could wish a perfect midwife, she would be an exact copy of Siobhan, would not have changed a thing. PS. We did not get to know Sarah as well, but she is fantastic too, they are an excellent pair’.
I can wholeheartedly say that my homebirth was magical and that was all down to having Siobhan by my side. From the moment we met, Siobhan felt like a good friend – I could talk to her about anything. Siobhan is caring, fun, personable, knowledgeable, a true professional and always at the end of the phone. As a first-time mother, pregnancy is fear of the unknown. It can be a time of stress and deep concerns for you and your partner. Siobhan reassured us and removed all those fears at every step – the months leading up to the big event, during the birth and, just as importantly, the weeks after.
