The blog posts written by North Surrey Midwife are written from the view point of an experienced midwife working outside of the hospital and NHS setting.
Midwives: you are reminded that as practising health professionals you need to make your own judgements and values on what is published here and in other blogs. I am not accountable for your practise.
Students and aspiring students: the world is your oyster. How you choose to practise is your choice; I hope these blogs inspire you to approach midwifery with care and love, and support women based on evidence - not unit policies.
Parents to be: birth is a normal, physiological event. My blogs represent a holistic view to birth and midwifery - and yes, they are quite 'earthy'. Choosing the person to support you at the birth of your child is a basic human right. If you can, choose wisely. Birth may last a day, but the memories last a life time.
