Your Birth Package

This is your birth and I will support you however and where ever you choose to give birth. If you wish to birth in hospital, I am within easy reach of Tunbridge Wells, The Conquest, Maidstone and Eastbourne hospitals and the midwife led Crowborough Birthing Centre. I can also travel to other hospitals - please contact me so we can discuss your individual requirements.

If you are planning a home birth, during the on call period I will always be within 1 hour of your home.

I offer a free one hour consultation so we can discuss your needs and how I can best support you in late pregnancy and labour.

Your Birth package then includes:

  • 2 Antenatal visits. These will usually last around 2 hours where we can get to know each other, talk through your birth choices, comfort measures, etc. We will also talk through your hopes and fears for your labour and I can help you draft a birth plan if you would like to have one.

  • An information pack detailing useful information and further resources.

  • Phone and email support

  • Use of my birth and baby books.

  • I will be on call exclusively to you, usually from 38 to 42 weeks. During this time I will not be further than 1 hour away from you.

  • When your labour starts I will join you whenever you feel you need me.

  • During labour I will offer practical support (eg suggesting positions, relaxation techniques etc), compassion and encouragement to you and your birth partner.

  • Once your baby is born, I will stay with you until you and your baby are settled and content.

  • One follow up visit. When your baby is around one week old, I will come to your home where we can talk though your birth experience, discuss how you are feeling, how your baby and family are doing and provide you with any further information you may need.

Your Birth Package total cost £400
