Full pregnancy check-up
Midwife Care offers appointment’s aimed at providing midwifery support and advice for any stage of pregnancy.
Full midwifery check up, support and information specific to the stage of your pregnancy.
Plenty of time to chat to a friendly midwife and ask questions etc as well as antenatal preparation regarding birth options, labour preparation, parenting skills and infant feeding
Referral would be made directly to your NHS care provider if there were any concerns regarding your Antenatal wellbeing.
“Midwife Care attends at home and provides a delightful one whole hour (or more if you want it) to carry out the routine pregnancy check up, as well as go through any concerns I may have had at the time….so good! Highly recommended!”
Seeing Midwife Care on a regular basis in my pregnancy made me less anxious. I really enjoyed the one to one aspect of midwifery, with un-rushed appointments. I also liked the continuity of care and developing a relationship with my midwife, as well as telephone access to my midwife for any concerns I had in between appointments.”
Most regrettably, Midwife Care is not currently offering Labour/birthing support services.
This is in part due to COVID and the consequential restrictions that were put in place with regards to the number of “permitted” support persons for birthing. In addition though, there is currently no Commercial Professional Indemnity Insurance available to us Independent Midwives for “intrapartum” (birthing) midwifery care; this is a legal requirement. Antenatal and Postnatal Indemnity Insurance thankfully is readily available.

“Postnatally, the highlight was when we returned from the hospital, Helen was there waiting to help settle us into our home. The postnatal package was a real comfort to us. She offered advice on everything relevant – breastfeeding, sleeping support, post birth support for me physically as well as to our newborn”
“The postnatal advice and support that Midwife Care gave was invaluable. The explanations on my Emergency Caesarean and its necessity were very reassuring. It helped greatly to come to terms with the events and to process the traumatic event. Helen demonstrated a very personal engagement and in-depth level of knowledge. We specifically would recommend Helen because of her expertise, compassion and empathy that she showed to us as our Independent Midwife”
