As an independent midwife, I am directly employed by the families I care for.
Initial consultation Before booking I offer an initial consultation to discuss your individual circumstances, needs and hopes for your pregnancy and birth. This usually takes a couple of hours, and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and also to see if working with an independent midwife is the right decision for you - and most importantly, if I am the right independent midwife for you. I know how important the midwife-mother relationship is, which is a big part of why I have chosen to work independently. It is essential that you are able to choose a midwife who you like and feel comfortable with. Fee: £75 The initial consultation fee is non-refundable, but should you choose to work with me, will go towards my fee. This consultation does not commit you in any way. **** Due to the lack of indemnity insurance for birth, sadly I am not able at this time to offer birth care. I do have professional indemnity in place for pre and post birth care.
