London Birth Practice – Independant Midwives
This service is offered by a well-established group of four experienced independent midwives, working throughout London.
You will be cared for by two dedicated midwives whom you get to know equally well during your pregnancy. They always aim to have two midwives present during the birth of your baby.
The postnatal period is a time of great importance for the whole family, so they visit you daily in the first week and tailor further visits to your needs throughout the first month.
Women who book with them appreciate the peace of mind of continuity and the combined wealth of experience and skill of two practitioners. As a group they support each other regularly by sharing clinical skills and up-to-date research. They constantly strive to enhance their knowledge by learning from each other and the women they care for.
They specialise in homebirth, waterbirth and VBAC (vaginal birth after a Caesarean), and can also support hospital births and offer a postnatal care package. They welcome women who have had a difficult birth experience in the past and are supportive of women wanting a vaginal breech or natural twin birth.
