Consultant midwives

Consultant midwives are experienced midwives who can help you by:

  • listening to any concerns or anxieties you may have about giving birth
  • discussing with you the most appropriate choices for you and your baby
  • working with you to create an individualised plan for the birth of your baby.

Birth planning

Your community midwife will discuss your birth preferences with you and help you decide the birth environment that will best meet your needs. Consultant midwives can provide additional support and advice to ensure a safe and personalised experience for you and your baby.

You may also be offered an appointment if you have additional requirements or preferences that are outside of our usual recommendations. They can discuss your options with you in more detail.
