Midwife: Valerie Gommon Midwifery Practice

Working as an Independent Midwife I can offer the luxury of unhurried appointments in the comfort of your own home, allowing plenty of time to prepare for the birth.

Birth with a known midwife has been proven to:

  • increase the likelihood of a normal birth
  • shorten labour and decrease the need for pain relief
  • improve maternal satisfaction and breastfeeding rates

I am an experienced, sensitive midwife who works with clients to help obtain the best possible experience at this special time. I can support you through pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and into early parenthood.

I have a strong belief in the normal physiological process of birth and predominantly attend women choosing to give birth at home. I am experienced in birth education, waterbirth and VBAC and have supported women giving birth to twins and breech babies.

I am happy to travel up to one hour from Castlethorpe; this means I cover parts of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire.

Please feel free to contact me for an informal discussion. Online at Midwife or 01908 511247.
