Happy Birthday To Us!

Today the the team celebrated eight years of providing a dedicated, case-loading, homebirth service for families booked with the Royal Surrey!

This year we took inspiration from The Greatest Showman with a circus themed party complete with red noses, popcorn, and candy floss- and the tag line- Your Body, Your Baby, Your Show!

We were delighted to see so many familiar faces and get the chance to observe how much your little ones, and you as parents, had changed and grown over the preceding months!

Hello My Name Is Caroline

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.
