Sheridan Thomas

NMC: 16K0739E

My name is Sheridan Thomas, I am an independent midwife who provides case-loading care for women and their families. I am passionate about providing a flexible and woman-centred service and I believe that this is promoted when strong, trusting relationships are built between the woman and her midwife and that pregnancy and birth outcomes are enhanced as a result.

I have cared for many women in challenging situations whereby their care has fallen outside of hospital policy, and therefore have become accustomed to fighting for their rights to autonomy over their own health. These experiences have shaped my practice and through it, I have become extremely passionate about women’s health rights and their right to compassionate care, despite what their health decisions may be.

I work alongside another midwife Georgia Allan to provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy from early pregnancy, with flexible appointments offered at home to suit the needs of you and your family. Regardless of where you choose to have your baby, we are on call for your birth and will provide labour care to you in your own home or birth support in a hospital of your choice. Following your birth, myself or Georgia will care for you throughout your postnatal period and support you during this precious transition into parenthood. We specialise in perinatal mental health and so we are aware of how challenging the early postnatal period can be, and how crucial excellent support is during this time.

I value the time it takes to get to know you and what is important to you, as a birthing person, and your family.

I will always provide up-to-date, evidence-based information to ensure you have all you need to make choices that are right for you and your pregnancy, birth, postnatal and parenting journey.

Nicky Grace

NMC: 97B0285E

I cover the East Midlands area within an hour’s drive of my home in Nottingham, including Nottinghamshire and parts of Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. I have been a Registered Midwife since 2000 and have practised as an independent (private) midwife since 2006. I also undertake clinical research as a midwife consultant. My passion is for supporting women’s choices and I am a very experienced home birth midwife. My midwifery philosophy centres around listening to women. Midwifery is the most wonderful profession as every woman is different and each birth such a special and significant time. I love my privileged job more every day.

Sarah Forster

NMC: 17J0174E

I am an Independent Midwife based in North East England, and I have a keen interest in homebirth, hypnobirthing, active birth and breastfeeding.

I have a science background, doing a Biomedical Sciences degree at Manchester University before starting Midwifery at Leeds and am always researching the evidence behind local and national guidelines to ensure that all my care is evidence-based and that my clients understand every aspect of their care and each decision they make.

Caring for families through the whole pregnancy, birth and new baby stages means you get to know and trust me and I get to know you and can therefore understand better how to support your transition into becoming parents.

I have been a specialist Homebirth Midwife within the NHS and have been involved in complex care planning and acting as an advocate for choice in every aspect of my role supporting women and their families.

Danielle Grange

NMC: 15G0022E

I am passionate about providing individualised, warm and empathetic care for you and your family, wherever you are on your transition to motherhood. I believe that having a genuine, personal and holistic relationship between woman and midwife can be empowering and liberating for a family as they welcome their new little person to the world.

I truly believe that all women should have access to this trusting relationship with their midwife, in the comfort of their own home. Within this, there is space and time to explore your emotional and psychological wellbeing, as well as the health of you and your baby. This relationship makes intimate discussions less daunting and allows for truly informed and unbiased discussions about your care, with you in control of every decision along the way, whatever your circumstances.

My passionate belief in the power of women and birth inspires me to share the secret truth about childbirth and tackle the misconceptions that society tells us about our bodies. From this, I have never felt more fulfilled or found such beauty and meaning in this humbling role in such an intimate time in life. I would be honoured to share my knowledge and experience with you.
