Midwives Exclusive is a small but dynamic midwifery practice consisting of four passionate midwives and whole team of support personnel, all working together to offer couples excellent care in pregnancy, the opportunity to give natural birth in a setting in which they feel comfortable, and to give support and guidance in their early weeks with a new baby.
Midwife and Manager/Founder of Midwives Exclusive
Midwifery is in my blood and I’ve been a midwife such a long time it’s hard to imagine what I did before I became a midwife. My first baby’s I “caught” as an independent midwife are now finished with school and are ready to have their own baby’s! I always said I’d retire when this happened but here I still am and I am still in awe with each birth. It seems that loving midwifery keeps me young.
As a midwife, I provide guidance, support, and a safe environment to reach good outcomes and good birth experiences. I believe that the couple needs to feel that they were part of the team. Childbirth is beautiful – every birth is truly unique! I never planned on becoming a midwife, but then midwifery found me!
I always wanted to do something that incorporated the excitement of trauma, the family led care of community healthy and midwifery. Finding my passion and my place as an independent midwife was somewhat of a surprise as I arrived back from doing missionary work in Northern Mozambique looking for my next challenge. Independent midwifery incorporates all 3 of my callings and it really is a calling.

I decided to study nursing the day I found out we would ‘catch’ babies, and I have never looked back! I am in awe of what women are capable of and have the privilege of witnessing the miracle of birth. I am passionate about pregnant moms and babies and truly believe every woman should have all the information she needs in order to make an informed decision and create a positive birth experience.
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

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!!
