Lucy and the home birth team, A huge thank you to you all for your continued support through our pregnancy and beyond. Your care, time and attention had been incredible and so much appreciated by us all. We are so grateful to have had this experience with you all…”
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.
An early and chilly start this morning to watch this lovely family welcome their second baby, who was in quiet a hurry, in to the world next to the Christmas tree #HomebirthJustHappened #continuity @RSCH_Maternity
Over night the team supported this experienced family as they welcomed their second baby, a en caul star gazer, in to the world at #home in the pool with their #namedmidwife in attendance #continuity #HomebirthJustHappened
The team were delighted to support these first time parents over night on Monday through to Tuesday morning as they welcomed their little explorer earthside in the comfort of their own #home #HomebirthJustHappened #continuity @RSCH_Maternity
When the weather is horrible there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa! The beauty of #homebirth is that you get to stay in your cosy, safe and familiar surroundings just like this second time mum supported by the team, her partner and their cat. It’s been an absolute pleasure supporting this family as their prepares for their homebirth and navigated their choices and we look forward to supporting them as they adjust to being a family of four #HomebirthJustHappened
A lovely card from one of our former client families. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your journey and for taking the time out of your busy lives to write this card.
“…Thank you so much for the care & suppprt you have given us, especially[redacted] during her pregnancy & birth. We felt incredibly lucky to finally get our homebirth & special thanks goes to Jodie, Kirsty and Zoe for their support and help during the birth of [redacted].
The team were delighted to support this family in the eve of Halloween as they welcomed their second child in to the world at #home. They even provided their own mini midwife in training (their first born child)!
“Dear Kirsty, Jodie, Lucy and all the homebirth team,
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you have done for us in helping with [redacted]’s birth.
We so appreciate all that you did – all the lovely home visits before his birth- Each appointment is like having very knowledgeable friend over for a cup of tea. It all makes for such a nice experience.
Thank you also for all that Jodie and Lucy did on the night of his birth. So calm and quiet and carefully looking after us while we were dazed and confused with a new baby and then after his birth it has been so reassuring having Kirsty’s advice on feeding, gunky eyes and baby poo!
It made such a difference to us and we will always be grateful to all of you.
