"There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don’t ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.” — Sheryl Feldman

Midwife and Manager/Founder of Midwives Exclusive
I love being a midwife, and facilitating a woman's childbirth is an energizing boost. Attending a birth creates a 'safe and quiet space' for me, where nothing else matters. This is how birth should be for every woman.

I believe supporting women throughout pregnancy empowers them in the way they give birth. Being part of this midwife family surrounded by like-minded women is an honor.

Midwife
As a young and passionate midwife, I love working with pregnant women and babies. My interest in traditional midwifery and lost caring practices led me to join the practice. I believe in providing holistic care to women and their families during this precious time, supporting and guiding them from the beginning of pregnancy to the arrival of their new baby.

Midwife
Midwifery is not merely a career for me; it's a lifelong passion and a chosen lifestyle. I am committed to fully embracing the principles and joys that midwifery brings, making it an integral part of my existence that I intend to live to the fullest.

Informed choices, freedom to choose your own birth space and care provider is an enormous part of the process and vitally important.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

Thank you for guiding Phil and I through your awesome, informative antenatal classes. It's really reassuring to me that I can go back to the online resource and videos that link to each class and check anything again, anytime. Your calm, confident approach was great and really appreciated, especially during COVID. The value added by having the classes online and from the comfort of our own home was also such a blessing. Thank you for the one on one time after the whole course to just reassure us we have this. You are a star

First time parent

The team at Midwives Exclusive is unbelievable! I am so eternally grateful for the care and support myself, hubby and baba have received through the birth process. I can honestly say I have felt held and so immensely cared for. My midwife was Heather, with Estie as back up and my Doula Gerné. Such a phenomenal team and I would choose them as my birthing tribe without changing a single thing!!! Hands down recommend!!
