“The job satisfaction is tremendous. I love being able to provide the continuity of care that every woman should have, and knowing that I have made a real difference to their experience of childbirth.” - Becky Stephens, 23, One to One midwife

I have been with One to One for seven months and in that time I have massively improved my skills as a midwife.

“One midwife, one woman, one relationship - this is the very heart of what One to One provides. We believe passionately that personalised care should be the right of every woman - to ensure a future generation of confident parents and healthier babies” - Joanne Parkington, Clinical Director, One to One (North West) Ltd

Commissioned by the NHS, One to One delivers an enhanced free, safe and supportive maternity service in the heart of local communities. 

With One to One, mothers and midwives work in partnership throughout the entire pregnancy and postnatal period to achieve a positive birth experience. Our philosophy is entrenched in the normality of birth, promoting home birth as a real choice for all low-risk women.

Mothers benefit from high-quality, one to one care – while our midwives have the opportunity to practice the art and science of their profession in its purest sense. Our unique model of care enables midwives to work autonomously - providing a flexible service that meets the needs of mothers and ensures a work/life balance for them too. 

One to One developed this new approach to NHS-commissioned maternity care because we believe that every woman has the right to enjoy a more satisfying pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience, with their own personal midwife throughout.
