My name is Mandy, I have many years of experience as a midwife supporting women both at home and in a hospital setting. I have a passion for exceptional midwifery care and believe that the continuity of the right carer, the art of listening, and the sharing of knowledge are key to this.
As a mother of two daughters, I have a true empathy with the women I have the pleasure to work with. I have been there, I wear the t-shirt!
I live in rural Cornwall and offer my services as a Private Midwife throughout the County and into Devon. I will also travel Worldwide to offer you my support, knowledge, and care, just send me an email Private Midwife
I have worked both within the NHS as well as independently. I ultimately chose to step outside of the NHS in order to offer true continuity of care that women deserve and desire. Research has proven time and time again that such care is the Gold Standard and this is how I like to work. Working with a small clientele allows me to spend quality time with each woman in their own home building a trusting relationship, enhancing their overall childbearing experience.
I also work freelance as a Midwife Expert Witness and offer my knowledge as a facilitator with BabyLifeLine Training UK supporting the training of Midwives/Students and Paramedics in Emergencies in Childbirth in the Community.
"From the very first moment that we met Mandy, we knew that she would be able to support us in achieving the birth we wanted"
I have a strong interest in water birth, hypnotherapy and its uses for pregnancy and birth, relaxation techniques and Active Birth, and a combination of any of these has been shown to help you create a relaxed, confident birth experience.
We all lead such busy lives and taking the time to care for ourselves gets lower on the ‘to do’ list, believe me, I know! Pregnancy and birth are a rite of passage for a woman and it’s a journey that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Having the right care provider is an investment and can make a huge difference to your childbirth experience. This is no time to just 'wing it' and hope for the best, it's time to make you, your growing baby, and your birth a priority by investing in your midwifery care. Book a consultation.
As your midwife, I can not guarantee that your pregnancy and birth will be easy and carefree, what I can guarantee is that I will be beside you to listen, observe, support, offering advice and expert midwifery care during your journey into parenthood. Working together, we can create the perfect care plan for you, one that will guide you towards a confident, life-affirming, and empowering birth experience. You will gain confidence in the knowledge that you are strong enough, you can do this.
"From our very first meeting with Mandy, she gave us a huge amount of confidence and reassurance that however the birth turned out to be that all would be well"
After the birth of your baby, I will be on hand to guide you through those initial early days of parenting. I remember how it felt to be a new parent and fully understand that you will be nervous and a little overwhelmed. I will be on hand to answer all your burning questions and to talk through any concerns. Time to talk and to listen is invaluable.

I look forward to getting to know you...
