I am an NHS midwife with over 8 years of experience caring for families. I have a wealth of knowledge on how to prepare your body, mind and environment to feel your best during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
My midwifery career has been focused on providing continuity of care, with home-birth being my passion. However, I also work within the hospital setting to ensure my skills and knowledge remain up to date.
I have worked with the Holistic Babies team for 5 years, gaining invaluable knowledge on infant behaviour and feeding. It is such a pleasure to help families have a smooth transition into parenthood, and being their source of support and knowledge.
At Holistic Babies I offer day and night support as a Newborn Care Specialist, providing invaluable advise on infant feeding, behaviour and sleep. I also facilitate 1:1 birth preparation workshops, where we discuss your individual needs and preferences for your labour and birth. Using a combination of my midwifery knowledge, my training in Biomechanics for Birth and aromatherapy use for labour and birth, we will finish the sessions ensuring you feel prepared and excited for your birth!
I am currently undertaking Western Medical Acupuncture training with a focus on women’s health and pregnancy/post-partum, which I aim to be qualified for in January 2024. I am excited to be able to offer this service in the future to offer treatments for common unpleasant pregnancy symptoms, and provide an alternative option for induction of labour. I am also completing my Hypnobirth Teacher training and will be able to offer sessions along-side Steph starting at the end of 2023.
I look forward to meeting you and your family!
Jess, Newborn Care Specialist at Holistic Babies London
