The Softest Cuddles


Another of our recent farewells to this lovely family as they continue their adventures as a family of four!
We supported this family throughout their antenatal care, through navigating their birth choices as they presented themselves, and continues their postnatal care. An absolute privilege as always to provide continuity.

Music to Our Ears

This incredible couple were supported in labour at home. With music a big part of their lives, a favourite moment was the guitar being played by Dad to keep everything calm. Supported at The Royal Surrey, they soon met their baby girl. It’s so lovely to continue our care in the postnatal period. #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens

Big Sister, Little Sister

A little catch up from last week. This amazing Mum considered her options when plans changed, and chose the birth that felt safest for her and her little girl. She had support of our wonderful colleagues at The Royal Surrey. We are privileged to continue her postnatal care at home, along with this very proud big sister! #birthisamazingwhereverithappens

It has been a privileged to support this experienced mum as she navigated her options and developed a birth plan that supported her to safely welcome her baby earthside at #home in the #pool #continuity #homebirthjusthappened

It was a bittersweet day today saying goodbye to this lovely family who birthed their baby at the start of the month with our RSH colleagues. We have been privileged to support them throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period. #continuity

This amazing 1st time mum listened to her baby and followed her instincts to birth with our colleagues at @RSCH_Maternity where she absolutely rocked her birth bringing her baby in to the world with the aid of water. #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens

Winter doesn’t last forever
