First of all, Congratulations!! You are embarking on the exciting journey of welcoming a new member to your family. I believe pregnancy and birth are remarkable but normal life events. I am passionate about supporting women to birth in primary birth centres and at home, however if the pregnancy requires it, I also support women to birth at the hospital. As a mother of 3, having started in my teens and through into my 30’s I understand that different phases of life require different approaches to care. I enjoy supporting woman of all ages and walks of life to have a positive experience through pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. I strongly believe you shouldn’t have to “leave your dignity at the door” when giving birth. It is my role as your LMC to help you maintain your dignity. I do this by working in partnership with you, providing you with respectful, supportive and sensitive care. Some inhibitions may get thrown to the wind, but not your dignity.
