We are very lucky in the UK that we have the NHS, however it can still be unnerving having strangers around you when your giving birth and throught the long weeks and months before and after childbirth, you can never be 100% sure who you will have on shift when you do finally go into labour.
An independant midwife gives you the options of having 1 to 1 care throughout your pregnancy and birth, and postnatal care too. If you are planning a homebirth it is a great option, as you can build a friendship with your midwife, and know they are on call for youm and it is they who you will be cared for.
Our local Independant Midwife is Kathryn Weymouth click here for her website
