Birth Story 14April 20, 2021
Our baby was born at the peak of coronavirus first wave. We’d planned a home birth with Kings College Hospital. We looked for independent midwives when it was announced they were stopping this service when I was a week past my due date!
A number of people recommended Tess and Leonie to us and they didn’t disappoint! They were so warm, reassuring and flexible with their service given how late in the day we came to them. They immediately made me feel relaxed in their care and some of the real positives were having a WhatsApp group so we could be in contact any time (especially reassuring for a first time mum) and lots of postnatal care and support with breastfeeding (great when NHS services were limited). They shared their extensive knowledge and expertise willingly but were always clear that everything was mine and my husband’s choice. I’m so pleased we had their support at what was quite a difficult time to have a baby!
