Hi I'm Mel, Im the Southwest Indie Midwife

I'm a skilled and passionate homebirth midwife, with a love for supporting physiology.

Whilst homebirth is my passion, I would love to support you however you are choosing to birth your baby. What I really care about is that you had a choice and you understood what that meant for you. Aswell as home, I can support you to birth your baby in a birth centre, hospital labour ward or maternity theatres, depending on your preferences and individual circumstances. I can also help you figure out what the best birthplace for you might look like!

I am skilled in caring for women who's choices might not align with national guidance and advocating for your choices. I want you to have an empowering, safe birth where you feel in control of your choices. I believe that continuity of carer builds trusting bonds to allow this to happen

I am passionate about relational care  and I am a trauma informed practitioner.   I will support you to tune in to your body and your baby to make the choices that are right and safe for you.

I am trained in hypnobirthing, biomechanics and aromatherapy so can care for your mind, body and soul throughout your journey in to parenthood

If you live within around 60 mins of Plymouth please get in contact to see how I can support you.
