Jenny Smith

Midwifery Care

I provide an holistic approach to childbirth that is tailored to your individual needs.

What is Midwifery Care?

My midwifery care packages offer a flexible and holistic arrangement to suit all pregnant women and birthing partners who wish to receive a much more tailored experience that puts your needs and wishes above all else.

This service is in addition to what is already offered in the NHS, but offers the continuity of personalized midwifery care in the comfort of your home in a calm and relaxed way. My clinical midwifery services can also be in combination with a consultant obstetrician where I provide midwifery input.

I provide midwifery clinical care within the Chelsea/Westminster area. Other services can be provided by Zoom or in-person.

I provide clinical midwifery and support services for the entire pregnancy, and your experience with me can include: 

  • Labour cover (Subject to availability. Women must be booked at Chelsea and Westminster NHS.)
  • AnteNatal and PostNatal support
  • Receiving educational sessions
  • Postnatal support

FAQs

What does the full package of midwifery care entail?

I will see you every month until 28 weeks, and then two weekly until 36 weeks, and weekly until the birth. This includes labour and postnatal care.

How is the AnteNatal and PostNatal package different?

With the AnteNatal package, I will provide clinical care for you during pregnancy. This may be in combination with the PostNatal package, where I will see you at home following the birth.

What does the birth rehearsal involve?

This is a two hour session specifically tailored for your plans for birth, whether it be a normal birth or caesarean section.

Jenny Smith turned the daunting prospect of birth into something we were excited about. Come the time, I felt empowered and prepared and unafraid. I knew my partner was fully informed of my choices and was able to support me brilliantly. We should all feel confident and positive about labour, not fearful of it. Every woman deserves to feel that way
