With their little ones keen to join the festivities, in the past few days we’ve supported four families as they welcomed their little ones in to the world and had the privileged of witness two births at #home. We will share their birth announcements, with permission, soon.
In the meantime we can tide you over with our “traditional” team photo from our annual Christmas meal. Many of you may notice a few familiar Surrey Hills faces!
Sadly we’ve goodbye to the lovely Jodie as she embarks on the next stage of her career at St Thomas’s. The Tommy’s mums and babies are lucky to have such a capable and caring midwife joining their unit and she will be greatly missed by the team and her case-loading families alike.
Over night the team, and more specifically the named midwife, were delighted to once again support these parents as they welcomed their third baby in to the world, their second at #Home with the team and the same named midwife #Continuity #HomebirthJustHappened
The team were privileged to support this experienced family as they welcomed their second child in to the world at home last week.
The the team were in awe as this powerful woman gave her baby the time and space it needed to make its way in to the world.
It’s been an absolute privilege to support this family on their childbirth journey as their plans were formulated and then adapted to changing circumstances. What’s especially wonderful is that we get to support them in the initial days and weeks of parenthood too #continuity
Kirsty and her student Sarah received a lovely card from a client this week. We absolutely love reading your kind words and feedback on our service. With your permission we love to share them On our social media accounts to help promote the team and normalise continuity and homebirth.
Did you know that most midwives keep the cards and letters they receive? We can use them feedback for our revalidation process which occurs every three years but most will collect and save all of the cards they get over the course of their careers.
Don’t have time to write a card or note? You can share feedback about your midwife and our maternity service via your Badgernet App! Friends and Family feedback can be accessed via the leaflets tab.
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!

Huge thanks to the babies who stayed in long enough for us to enjoy our team Christmas meal last night.

A beautiful baby girl born whilst the harvest super moon shone down.
