More About Natalie
Bachelor of Science (Hons) Midwifery, Newborn Infant and Physical Examination Practitioner
I work with parents, providing continuity of care throughout the pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum journey and so am happy to answer any questions you may have at any point during this significant, joyful and sometimes overwhelming time. I specialise in working with couples who are seeking a non-interventionist, natural birth and am lead of the home-birth team at the local hospital. However, I also work regularly on the labour ward and so am familiar in all aspects of labour care.
How can I help
I can also offer advice on infant feeding, whether that be breast or formula, and common issues such as tongue-tie, sore nipples, mastitis and weight loss.
