Service Suspension and Support..

Not the start to the New Year we had hoped for.
After a difficult and disappointing few days for the team and our caseload, we are so grateful for the support of our antenatal education team of Caroline and Natalie (both former Homebirth Midwives) for putting together these sessions for support and reassurance to our caseload. Link to register is below, a letter is being sent out to the whole caseload with an access code for the registration – your midwife has this code too, so any queries, do get in touch.

As a small team it is not possible for us to provide 24/7 cover for births in the maternity unit but from the 31/12/20, Kirsty, Lucy C, Lucy M, Becca and Claire will be working Night shifts at the Royal Surrey’s birthing unit with the aim of supporting as many of you as possible when you have your babies, and supporting our wonderful colleagues to continue to provide safe and positive care during the pandemic.
We will be continuing all Antenatal and Postnatal care as a team by running 3 clinics a week. The other 4 days of the week will be maintaining an overview of the whole caseload and providing Oncall cover for the hospital for any of our ‘labouring mums’.

Plans will likely evolve over the coming days and weeks but we will endeavour to support and care for you as a team in what ever capacity we can.

We are still in the process of contacting everyone individually, please do be patient as we set up all the changes.

The suspension of the service will be reviewed every week by Amy, our Head of Midwifery and we will keep you all updated with any changes.

We continue to invite families who are interested in homebirthing, so please do continue to get in touch via our email address so that we can talk through your options individually.
Stay safe.
Best wishes,
Kirsty, Lucy, Lucy, Becca and Claire
The Surrey Hills Homebirth Team


Any comments of support from previous families affected in the 1st Lockdown will be greatly appreciated to those who now find themselves in the same position 💕
