" Mandy tailored a package of care that matched my needs. I had no idea how many questions I would have as my pregnancy progressed. Having your own midwife a text message away was invaluable and when she visited there was always plenty of time for a cup of tea and question time!"
As a private midwife in Cornwall, I work as an independent practitioner to offer private midwifery services to those who wish to access an enhanced model of care tailored to their individual needs.
Antenatal Care - No more clinics
All appointments will take place in your home and will be appropriate for your needs. Each planned visit will be at a time to suit you and will not only cover the routine antenatal checks on both mother and baby but also encompass general physiological and psychological well-being such as diet, exercise, relaxation techniques, maximising optimal fetal positioning, practical advice, emotional support and any aspect of antenatal education pertaining to your individual needs. Routine blood tests, scans, and referrals can be arranged as required in partnership with the NHS and I can accompany you to any hospital appointments if desired.
Throughout your pregnancy, you will steadily grow in confidence and knowledge and as your labour and birth approach, you will feel relaxed and ready to make your informed decisions and choices throughout.
Book now for a consultation in your home.
Your Individualised Antenatal Care Plan will be bespoke according to your wishes and needs.
Intrapartum Support - Continuity of Carer
Having continuity of support from a midwife you have gained a trusting relationship with, has been proven time and time again to be the Gold Standard of care throughout your labour and the birth of your baby. Whether you are planning a hospital birth or to birth at home, Mandy will plan to be beside you to offer her support either as your professional advocate or your midwife as you meet your baby.
Intrapartum (labour/Birth) care can be safely arranged with access to appropriate Professional indemnity Insurance. Please get in touch to discuss all the options in your area.
Postnatal care - 28 Days of support
You did it! now comes the hard work...
As part of your postnatal care, I will guide you through those early days of parenthood. From establishing breastfeeding to learning the art of nappy changing, I will be on hand whilst you get to grips with newborn parenting. I understand you may be nervous and overwhelmed, I will help you to gain the confidence you desire.
My visits will continue for around 28 days, checking on both your own and your baby’s health and progress. Together we will continue with postnatal education such as bathing your baby, breastfeeding positions and post birth exercises. This support not only covers the physiological care of you and your new baby but also your emotional well-being during your transition into parenthood.
You've got this!
As the time to say our goodbyes approaches I will help establish links between you and your local community, involving the care of the Health Visitor and your GP, leaving you in safe hands.
