This option is available in all areas, but women in Ireland are advised to contact their local hospital as they need to give permission for your private midwife to accompany you. Permission is not required for any hospital in the UK.
Your midwife can be with you at home to support you in early labour if you have booked an antenatal care package with us. When the time is right, you make your way to the hospital and your midwife will meet you there. She will stay with you throughout, ensuring you are never left alone and there is always a skilled professional watching over you and your baby. The hospital will be clinically responsible for you and your private midwife will provide emotional support to you and your partner. Everything will be explained to you by someone you know and trust. Your midwife will ensure your wishes are respected and listened to
