Be a pineapple

Be a pineapple: stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside!

It been an absolute delight to support this sweet family as they prepared for their baby’s arrival, as they adapted to changes in their plan, and over the first precious days at home as a new family #continuity #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens @RSCH_Maternity ‬

Warm welcome

It’s such a joy to be welcomed by all members of the family!

Last week we were delighted to be able to support this family as they birthed their little boy in to the world in #water #VBAC #namedmidwife #continuity #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens @RSCH_Maternity #choice

Icing on the cake

One of the amazing things about continuity is that it enhances the professional relationship with an extra layer of understanding, friendship and trust.

All of the births we are privileged to attend are special but for Kirsty supporting her friend, former student cohort member and our colleague, throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period has been “the icing on the cake”.

Flu the nest

Last week we said goodbye to this lovely family as they embarked on the next step of their Journey as a family of five.

It was a pleasure to support them through the twists and turns of pregnancy, birth and flu with the help of our wonderful multidisciplinary colleagues at the Royal Surrey.
