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.

I struggled with a lot of anxiety during my pregnancy so I decided that I needed more support when the baby is here. From the first time I spoke to Sarah I found her so knowledgeable and understanding. She wanted me to feel as comfortable as possible during labour, so she gave me information on what exactly to expect and helped me with my birth plan.
We started seeing Sarah from day 3 of our little boy’s life. She helped us by answering all of our questions, and reassured us when we were felling overwhelmed. She made the first month as new parents much easier and more pleasant than it could have been because we knew we could always depend on her for advice. We will a be grateful to her.She is also incredibly cool and fun to be around, which is very helpful when your mood is down from all the sleepless nights!!
