It is impossible to explain how much Helen has helped us. I credit her with my positive pregnancy, birth and parenting experience to date. Her support has made a phenomenal difference for our family. She helped us make informed choices as pregnancy progressed – everyone commented how calm I seemed and I think this contributed hugely to a relaxed straightforward labour. Having a relationship with your midwife helps immensely and it is a real shame this isn’t the normal procedure.
Helen was a mentor, a friend and when necessary ensured i got the old-fashioned straight talking I needed to get through labour! When we had early issues with breastfeeding Helen was fantastic and without her support I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to continue. We were also impressed she supported us as a family and included my husband. I would not have another child without her support and recommend her services to everyone.
