Private Midwifery Care

Midwifery care in Londion, providing a holistic approach to childbirth, tailored to your individual needs.

What is Midwifery Care?

My private midwifery care packages offer a flexible and holistic arrangement to suit all pregnant women and birthing partners. It is ideal for those who wish to receive a more tailored experience; one that puts your needs and wishes above all else.

This service is in addition to what is already offered in the NHS. However, it 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 support
  • Receiving educational sessions
  • Postnatal support
  • Communication through WhatsApp, text and one to one conversations
  • The option of home visits or online support
  • Birth trauma support, where needed
  • Flexibility in how you want the sessions to work

What's included?

Ad hoc individual sessions - from £80 per hour

These sessions can be offered at any time during your pregnancy, pre-birth, and afterwards.

If at any stage you would like a calm conversation to discuss any questions you may have in your pregnancy leading up to birth or beyond.

I am delighted to offer this session which prepares you and your partner for a natural caesarean and also gives your practical and psychological support offering choices in preparation before and after and giving you confidence for the birthday and beyond.

"Jenny looked after  for my pregnancy, birth and postpartum for both my daughters and honestly I dont know what I would have done without her. I was able to get int touch with Jenny 24/7 with any worries or questions I may have had and she would always put my mind at rest. I always looked forward to my antenatal appointments, Jenny has such a good way of making one feel excited about everything and takes any worry you may have away.


I had to have C sections with both my daughters and Jenny was me throughout the births keeping me and my husband calm. There were some complications during my second C section, and without Jenny by my side I honestly think it would have taken me much longer to recover she was by side the whole time! I had to stay in hospital for a little while and Jenny was there everyday looking after me and going out of her way to help me in anyway possible. I am truly indebted to Jenny and I could not recommend her more! And what’s more is she now a friend who I regularly keep in touch with."
