My name is Julie. I’ve been qualified as a midwife for 20 years and been lucky enough to work in a variety of settings, including many years in the NHS, the private sector at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children and overseas, working with military families. I’ve learnt from the best and had the privilege of caring for many clients and their families.
I am passionate about midwifery but feel that over the years, resources are stretched to the limit and new families aren’t always getting the unlimited one to one postnatal care and support they need.
Based in Knutsford, Cheshire but happy to travel to surrounding areas, I hope to provide an individualised package to new mums and dads in those initial, scary, early days to listen, support, advise and empower.
As a professional Midwife BSc (Hons), I’ve received comprehensive training, and maintain my skills and knowledge through continued education and research. This training helps me stay up to date with the most relevant information, and ensures I’m providing you with evidence based, best care possible.
I am regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and have full Professional Indemnity Insurance.
