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!

If you are new to the team and would like to meet us to have a chat about your birth place options simply pop along to one of our informal forums or email us to arrange a chat in the comfort of your own home.
Many of you may remember that NHS England attended one of our forums at the end of 2017 in order to make a film about #BetterBirths and the importance of #continuity. They finally released the video! It’s wonderful to see so many familiar faces.
Thank you to everyone that took part.
Alice and Caroline had a lovely day on Saturday meeting lots of family’s and pregnancy and birth workers at the Doula UK Bumps, Birth and Baby event in Godalming.
The team shared their stand with Paulette Kerr, project manager for Surrey Heartlands Better Births project. It was wonderful to see so many people taking an interest in the future of Maternity services and the Maternity Transformation Project.
They were gifted with a special visit from Surrey Hills Midwife, Sarah, and her beautiful ten day old daughter Maeve.
This lovely family worked hard, balancing lots of information, to plan a birth that felt right for them. This excited big brother awoke to find his not so little sister had been born while he slept.
This experienced mum birthed her baby at home surrounded by love
