Hi, My name is Rene Bozier, I have been a Private Midwife with home birth being my speciality for 15 years. I really enjoy working with families in a continuity model; Educating women and their family about pregnancy and birth.

In 2013 I qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) which is the gold standard for breastfeeding support. I believe every woman should have access to skilled breastfeeding support, from birth, to optimise the experience for those who choose to breastfeed. It’s a privilege to journey with a woman and her family through this important passage of life.

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.
Hi, I’m Joanna! I’m a midwife, aquanatal instructor, hypnobirthing teacher, pregnancy and postnatal yoga teacher and trained in aromatherapy for birth.

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.
