I’m Sophie, a midwife and mother, living in Buckinghamshire and working in a busy London hospital. Despite my experience as a midwife, I found the lack of support after having a baby a huge shock and so in 2018 decided to set up The Village Midwife.
Hearing mums at baby groups saying “I wish I’d known…” or “I wasn’t allowed…” made me want to reinvent Antenatal Classes so that pregnant women and their birth partners went into their birth experiences knowing their full range of options as well as feeling empowered, positive and prepared. I wanted to create a community of new mums who could support each other and so started our popular Postnatal Course as well as the antenatal course, and started The No Sleep Club for even more local support. I also teach my bespoke Hypnobirthing Course which combines my midwifery experience with hypnobirthing relaxation techniques for a positive and relaxed birth experience!
Our courses truly make a big difference to local parents – I believe everyone has the right to honest, informed preparation for giving birth and to the non-judgemental support you need during life with your new baby!
