My previous births were traumatic, and I needed to find someone who would support a gentle approach. My birth choices would not have been possible with the NHS and the connection and trust that I built with Nicky allowed me to have a peaceful but powerful birth.
Having Nicky by our sides during our pregnancy and as first-time parents was the best decision ever made. She made everything seems so easy and in turn it actually was very easy. All stages of the pregnancy were clearly explained in detail and all focus was on us, giving us so much confidence. Nicky supported us, encouraged us and cared for us. We felt well informed with the professional experience she has. Both me and my husband felt we were in full control of the birth of our 1st born and could have not asked for anything better. The support after birth was more than expected, to the extent that Nicky became part of our family. Breast feeding even though came naturally on the day of birth it was a rollercoaster ride months down the line and Nicky stood by me throughout. Now that we are pregnant again, Nicky has been with us from the very beginning, it was the easiest decision both me and my husband had to make. Nicky we are very grateful for all your love, care, support and the confidence you bring us during this very special time in our lives. Thank you so much. xxx
We had 2 fantastic births thanks to you and your knowledge & support (and obviously the efforts of my hard-core better half).
I did the easy bit and just watched.
As a midwife Nicky is amazing. She walked alongside me through 2 challenging pregnancies, always supporting my choices whilst still holding her professional standards high. She gave me confidence in my ability to make my own decisions about what I wanted for the births even though I was going against standard medical advice in my choices. She was such a part of it all for me and for my family too, always including the children in ante-natal visits and making it fun for them. I think my experiences of the two pregnancies and births would have been very different without Nicky supporting me all the way through. She is wonderful. You will not regret making her a part of the circle of support surrounding you at this very important time in your life.
