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.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Sarah, thanks to her knowledge, wisdom and experience my two children have had the best start in life. She guided me through two pregnancies and births and then supported my husband and I in the first weeks of their lives.

Sarah helped me to create positive birth plans and she gave me the confidence and the know how to use these plans while I was in hospital before, during and after the birth. During my second birth I could often hear her voice in my head guiding me and encouraging me to trust my instincts and do what was best for my baby and I. So it is thanks to Sarah that I had almost constant skin to skin with my babies for the first days and nights of their lives and I was able to successfully breastfeed both of my babies and not suffer any complications. I firmly believe that this is why they were both happy and healthy babies.

During my first pregnancy I was extremely anxious and Sarah has helped me to gradually overcome my fears and she has given me the tools that I needed to become a very happy and confident mother of two. I really don’t know what we would have done without her. C and C.
