Our approach is based around a handful of fundamental values:
You will have your own dedicated midwife who will care for you throughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. During this time, you will develop a close relationship with her, getting to know and trust her so you feel fully supported in any decisions you make. She will deliver one-to-one care during your labour and birth.
Neighbourhood midwives is a fully insured service and all our midwives work to our comprehensive guidelines. Our evidence based clinical guidelines are woman-centred and based on the best midwifery practice and the most up-to-date research. We work closely with our colleagues in the NHS to ensure that you have access to any additional care should you need it. We are registered with the Care Quality Commission.
Your midwife will be local to you and all appointments will be arranged at a time and place convenient to you. In addition to regular appointments, she can offer advice over the phone at any time of the day or night.
Your midwife is available to you 24/7. You can depend on her for support at all stages of your journey into motherhood. Each of our midwives are fully supported by their local practice so there is always additional support available should it be needed.
