Do as you’re told, dearie, or the end of independent midwifery.

I am fuming. At the beginning of January, and with almost no warning, the NMC (Nurse and Midwifery Council) declared IMUK (Independent Midwifes UK) insurance policy not fit for purpose. And just like that, without warning, they put an end to independent midwifery practise in the UK. This has left many expectant mothers who had booked…

Supporting empowered knowledge in a broken system – a birthworker’s dilemma

The most important thing in everything I do is to support informed decision making and empowered choice. And yet it probably is the toughest balancing act. In a maternity system that isn’t fit for purpose, how do you prepare parents for what is waiting for them without scaring the shit out of them? I find…

Doula myth series part 2: doulas are only for homebirths

  After “I don’t need a doula because I have my partner” this is the second biggest myth about doulas I have lost count of how many times I’ve been asked “can I have a doula if I am planning to birth in the hospital”, so this myth is very real indeed. Let me set…

Induction of labour- do you know what you’re letting yourself in for?

Induction of labour in the bane of many birthworkers lives (and of many pregnant women’s too). In the area I live in, it is reaching epidemic proportions (about 35% of first time mothers) Deciding to consent to induction is a complex decision, one that should be fully supported, without pressure or coercion, so that  women…

Anger, shame and awe, a reflection on visiting a refugee camp in Dunkirk

I am just back from spending a day helping volunteers and women in a refugee camp near Dunkirk, in the North of France. I am in shock, and I am finding it hard to find the words to express the multiple layers of emotion this trip elicited. I started planning for this trip months ago,…

Slow the f*ck down-how to look after yourself after the birth of your baby

Looking after new mums recently, I’ve been reminded how the message we get from our culture is seriously wrong. This emphasis on “getting back to normal” is bullshit There is no “normal” just after you’ve had a baby. This isn’t a bloody race. Yet everything is geared towards you pretending that nothing has happened, and the…

Choosing love over fear as a birthworker

As a doula the biggest lesson since I started supporting women has been to choose love over fear. I remember very early on in my doula life I witnessed a very traumatic birth -it was traumatic for the parents, and it was extremely traumatic for me. I cried for days afterwards. The mother had an…

The impostor syndrome in the birth world

  Do you sometimes suffer from impostor syndrome? Do you worry that you do not know enough, that you haven’t got enough to offer? I’ve been reminded this week that we all have different levels of knowledge. That others know more than us and that we know more than others. This doesn’t mean that we…
