Page 6 LUX Parent & Baby Awards 2019 When it comes to having a baby, the excitement should always outweigh the nervousness, and a huge part of that comes down to having the right midwife. With Private Midwives, each midwife works a case-load model to ensure they are available 24/7 and that the parent-to-be has complete continuity of care from a known, trusted, and experienced midwife. Working in collaboration with the NHS and HSE, care is seamless and coordinated, always putting the needs and comfort of the mother first. From preparation and parent education before the baby arrives, to intensive breast feeding support, post-natal care, and home- making support, Private Midwives tailor each package of care to meet the client needs. Every aspect of the care is individualised and personalised, using nationally recommended best practice guidelines to optimise safety. The mother and her family are always at the centre of decision-making, as the midwives offer knowledge to help with informed choices which balances safety and a positive birthing experience. Employing around seventy midwives, the firm hires experienced staff who are fully committed to a case-loading model of care. Private Midwives’ staff are regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in England, or the Nursing and Midwifery Pregnancy is a wonderful time for mothers-to-be, with the excitement of a new arrival permeating all those around.
