Being pregnant and giving birth is a deeply personal experience and a significant rite of passage. People should emerge from the childbirth continuum feeling joyful, strong and confident, and babies should be welcomed in the most gentle and loving way possible.
Whether you are planning a home birth, hospital birth, or needing some additional support from a known and trusted midwife to supplement your NHS care, an independent midwife can offer you one to one personalised care, providing you with choice, control and continuity. At Birthfully, I offer private, independent midwifery within a 40-mile radius of Frome, including Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and South Wales, and as a traveling midwife around the world, providing a fully personalised, client-centred and holistic service. I offer a range of midwifery services on a private basis, including pregnancy, postnatal and baby massage and three packages of care: antenatal, postnatal and full midwifery care. I also offer birth healing and debriefing, shamanic midwifery support and pregnancy support and coaching on skype.
My philosophy of care is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are natural physiological processes, that women have the innate ability to birth their babies, and that birth is almost always a family event rather than a medical one. Please explore my offerings and contact me for more information about how we might work together and if I can support you.
