Midwifery Services in South Cheshire

One to One Midwives are free to all NHS patients and are available under Mid and Northeast Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which covers the following areas:

  • Alsager
  • Crewe
  • Middlewich
  • Nantwich
  • Northwich

One to One Midwives provide a community based midwifery service with continuity and choice at the heart of everything we do. When you first access One to One you will be allocated a named midwife who will be the lead caregiver throughout your pregnancy, birth (if you choose a homebirth) and for 6 weeks of postnatal care. 

Your One to One midwife will be available over 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and when she is on holiday her ‘buddy’ will be available instead. 

Care takes place in your homes (or location of your choice) at times to suit your needs and the vast majority of visits take place in the evening or at weekends to ensure that your partners are also active participants in the care. There are no limits to the number of visits and you and midwife will agree how often the visits should take place to meet the individual needs of your family. 

Our service is completely free of charge and you can self refer to us in the following ways:
