Looking for an Independent private midwife & health visitor

Amelia Parker

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.

My professional practice

I have over 20 years experience having undertaken my professional training and development in the United Kingdom. This experience was gained both in hospital and community settings. In addition to my nursing midwifery and health visiting skills I am a specialist Family Planning Nurse, Tongue Tie specialist, Smoking Cessation advisor.

My practice is regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC] whose aim is public protection through professional standards. As a health professional I follow the NMC Code of Professional Conduct. I meet with my Supervisor of Midwives yearly. I follow the NMC Revalidation Guidance to maintain my registration and practice. I am current with latest research and professional information.

I am a full member of the Royal College of Nursing [RCN]

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

“The process from conception to birth and beyond, is for most women a normal physiological and psychological process. I believe in a woman’s ability to birth her baby without interference, but with love and support from her family and significant others who are privileged to share this wonderful journey of discovery with her.”

Testimonials

Looking cautiously round, to ascertain that they were not overheard, the two hags cowered
nearer to the fire, and chuckled heartily.
