Happy Christmas x

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 gift

‪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 ‬

Cozy Cat

‪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 ‬
