We are a network of Community Midwives who specialise in your physical and emotional wellbeing. We regularlysee the value of continuity of care for the mother and her baby, and we believe:
Every woman comes to Motherhood at a different time in her lifeand will experience pregnancy and birth in her own unique way.
Every woman has the right to have support and mentoring throughout her mothering journey from friends and professionals who she trusts, and who understand that ‘Mothering’ is a process that needs to be experienced by the individual, and confidence in her own abilities reinforced and celebrated.
Every woman should have the opportunity to have antenatal and postnatal care which is available, inclusive and supports them in their transition to Motherhood, but which collaborates and links in with their Primary Carer, whoever that maybe.
Every woman should recognise the importance of good emotional health and well being during her pregnancy, and give it as much attention as her physical preparation.
Every woman needs to have someone to listen to her fears and anxieties, and her feelings about becoming a Mother, her pregnancy and her birth. And share experiences and knowledge.
Every woman has the right to be included in any and all decisions related to these, to feel she has CONTROL over what happens to her body.
