Birth Story 3November 11, 2019
Choosing private midwifery care was not a small financial decision for us, but when an unusual complication arose halfway through my pregnancy and our NHS obstetrician experience left a lot to be desired, we felt some extra support would mean a lot to us. We couldn’t have been more right. From the first appointment we felt assured, safe and excited again about our birth. It was an instant feeling of being in good hands – such a relief. Leonie and Tess went above and beyond anything we could have expected, researching my complication, liaising with many nhs staff, advocating for our wishes, and providing amazing support throughout my (very long) labour. In particular the postnatal care they gave us was invaluable and I am not sure how I would have managed without it. I felt supported and informed in all my decisions along the way. Ultimately they are the reason I avoided an unnecessary c-section. As a family we feel genuinely listened to and cared for – absolutely no regrets and we can highly recommend them.
