Are you unable to find a suitable birth place where you live?
Would you like to have a home birth but unable to find the right support in your area? Are you looking for an undisturbed birth on your own terms?
How does a traveling midwife work?
Book early. I am only able to travel for 3 births per year so early booking is essential.
Ideally, I will arrive 7 – 10 days before your expected due date and I will stay with you until at least 10 days after your baby is born. Most often I will be with you for 4 – 5 weeks in total attending to all your needs.
I carry all the equipment that is necessary and I am able to manage complications and recognise when things are not going as planned and recommend transfer.
I will spend time with you and your partner before the birth doing as much birth preparation as you require and getting you into the right mindset.
After the birth I will support and help with breastfeeding and will continue to support you virtually for another 2 weeks after leaving.
