Over the weekend the team supported this first time mum welcome her baby earthside at #home #HomebirthJustHappened
One of the amazing things about continuity is that it enhances the professional relationship with an extra layer of understanding, friendship and trust.
All of the births we are privileged to attend are special but for Kirsty supporting her friend, former student cohort member and our colleague, throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period has been “the icing on the cake”.

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.”
