I just wanted to say to both you and Kirsty thank you so much for all that you did when baby [redacted] was born.
You helped me have the calm home birth I was hoping for, despite all the extra measures you have to take due to COVID-19. Even having to transfer in afterwards, I felt reassured and supported because you were able to stay with me throughout which I didn’t expect but made it all a lot less scary!
I can’t thank you and the rest of the home birth team, including Laura in the early days, Anna and Emily, enough for everything you have done during my pregnancy and birth.
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.
Royal Surrey Stars Patient Choice nomination 2019:
“This team has gone above and beyond any expectation/norms for me and my family. The ladies helped me to have the birth I always wanted whilst trying to overcome PTSD post previous birth I have struggled with for the past 10 years.
I have my life back because of their dedication, love and care. I am forever indebted to Laura, Emily, Tanya plus all of the Jasmine team for giving my life back again. Without their exceptional professional care and incredible patience I would not be the woman I am today.
My deepest thanks go out to Laura for being my amazing support throughout the pregnancy and delivery the baby and Emily for staying with us post birth and being our rock.”

This morning the team had the pleasure of supporting this lovely family as they welcomed their third baby, a little boy, in to the world. Fabulous #continuity with their named midwife in attendance! #HomebirthJustHappened @RSCH_Maternity #Choice #BetterBirths
This family didn’t have to travel far to birth their baby this morning. In fact they stayed in their own comfortable home! The second baby for this family but first #Homebirth, one that was supported by the mothers named midwife #HomebirthJustHappened #Continuity #support #choice #BetterBirths
