Better than I could have imagined

I had a very easy pregnancy, labour and delivery in hospital with my first and I knew I wanted to give birth to my second at home. I self-referred to One to One Midwives when I was 12 weeks pregnant and we met a lovely midwife at our home, who ex..

The second time round (a speedy homebirth)

20-Jun-2017

Our third pregnancy came as a surprise! And was as much trouble then as she is now. I had a pretty rough pregnancy with awful sickness morning, noon and night for the majority of my pregnancy but all that was forgotten after my second wonder..

Never say never! From C-section to home birth

20-Jun-2017

Second pregnancy, first home birth

30-Mar-2017

When I found out I was pregnant for the second time, there was no doubt in my mind, I was going to use One to One again. With my first I didn’t find out about One to One until I was 24 weeks pregnant. I had a hospital birth, which was quite..

Choice
