The team were blessed with a second birth today. This experienced family birthed their third child, their first daughter and first homebirth, at home supported by their named midwife and the Student Midwife who has been following their case for months
Hello my name is Caroline and I have been a member of the homebirth team since the end of 2015.
I’ve always had an interest in physiological birth and in facilitating informed decision making and I’ve been lucky to be able to utilise these passions. Over my seventeen year career I have worked predominantly within the community and within the Midwifery Led Unit.
It was after the births of my second and third babies at home, with Tanya as my named midwife, that I was inspired to join the homebirth team.
I am extremely grateful that although I work part time I am still able to work within this amazing continuity model alongside some phenomenal women-mothers and midwives.
When I’m not working within the continuity model I also enjoy providing evidence based information and supporting choice to the wider maternity population through facilitating antenatal education classes and creating content for the Maternity Facebook page, and our teams social media accounts.
If you would like to learn more about the team and birthing your baby in your own home come along to one of the team’s informal forums or contact the team to arrange a chat in the comfort of your own home firstname.lastname@example.org

The team certainly felt the love tonight as they supported this experienced mum birth her little boy at home in the pool. Also providing support were the baby’s dad, granny and aunts. His older siblings even popped down to meet him at a few minutes old
It takes more than luck to have the birth you desire. This mum explored her options for birth and worked hard to bring her daughter in to the world.
The team were delighted to support her, especially her named midwife who’d supported her since booking.
Starting #IDM19 in the best possible way with a beautiful homebirth ! This lovely family birthed their second baby at home in the pool, in the comfort of their living room, supported by two midwives they’d met before #Choice #Continuity #Homebirth
It was an absolute pleasure to support these first time parents as they welcomed their daughter in to their arms at home in the pool.
This little lady was in a hurry to meet her parents this morning arriving a few days before her guess date and in just a few hours of active labours
These first time parents absolutely rocked their baby’s birth. Initially a star gazer, this little man was given the time and space he needed to find his own path Earthside , in to his mothers arm. #HomeBirthJustHappened #Continuity
