Welcome to my Website
I am an Independent private midwife health visitor and complimentary therapist providing services over London, Hertfordshire, Essex Cambridgeshire & Suffolk.
I love my role as a midwife and health professional. Being a midwife is wonderful and I am so privileged to work with women families and the next generation.
I am a mother of two and know the life changing enrichment my children bring me daily. I remember my feelings when pregnant and following birth. My experiences were strengthened by my family support and the guidance of two wonderful midwives Angela and Debbie. I have their pictures in my memory where they will always remain. My personal motherhood experiences rank among my best life moments.
I know sadly for many my experience is not theirs. As your Independent professional I aim to be by your side on your journey to parenthood and beyond. This enables the development of a trusting strong relationship. I aim to support your right to choice and control through continuity of care. This puts you at the centre in charge of all decisions affecting you and your baby.
Midwives are experts in ‘normal’ birth promoting a healthy birth experience with higher breastfeeding and lower rates of Caesarean Section, infection and hospital attendance. Women know this and tell me they have contacted me to support them for just these reasons.
I want to work with you in a collaborative way. I will listen to you, offering research based evidence and a wide professional knowledge base. From this you will be able to make informed choices as well as trust and value your instinct. I see the value of family support to your birth experience. I seek to include close family in discussions talking reassuring during the birth as required. This gives them information to support you.
Working independently facilitates the full range of my professional skills getting to know and work with a small group of women on a ‘one to one’ basis. When I visit I offer you individualised care and ‘time’. I wish to support women with previous difficult/traumatic birth experiences. I work with women and families wishing to birth their babies in hospital.

I am current with latest research and professional information.

As well as my work I love reading walking my two dogs and the cinema.

Lucy Mark and Kitty
Dear Amelia Just to let you know Kitty’s tongue seems to be healing well. She can now move it around really well and it hasn’t bothered her atall! Thank you again for your help
Lara Mark and Naomi
We were happy with all aspects of your care package and would not hesitate to use you again next time! Many thanks for all your help!
Jo and Olivia
When I met you I knew that Id be happy and comfortable placing my care in your hands which strengthened as time progressed. I couldn’t have hoped for a more perfect pregnancy and birth and the circumstances in which Olivia entered the world, at home, and relaxed would not have happened without you. In the first days and weeks as a new Mum it was of great peace of mind to know that you were there for me at the end of a telephone, or in person when I needed you.
Lisa Dominic and Niamh
I valued the range of experience you had and your professional and friendly manner. I had excellent care and felt really looked after! I particularly liked the pregnancy workshops. In labour your support was completely invaluable, and following Niamh’s birth your advice and visits were reassuring and tremendously appreciated. All I can say is thank you so much for your fantastic work, support and friendship
Alison Nigel and Eleanor
I booked with you as I liked the information you gave me and that you were prepared to work over Christmas. You provided up to date information and directed me to where I could find other information. I was very happy with the care I received especially over the Christmas period.
You gave me up to date information about my pregnancy and birth which was invaluable. I chose you following recommendation from a friend. I felt your care enabled me to have a flexible birth plan. I felt able to contact you with any questions. I was so glad to have your support and encouragement in labour. Your care after the birth was invaluable.
