Our Practice

Highly Experienced Midwives

The key to having a smooth and successful pregnancy is finding the right obstetrician and midwifery team who are dedicated to you and your pregnancy.

Our staff are all trained midwives. Whoever you speak to at the practice, you’ll have the benefit of their many years of experience working in hospital labour wards and postnatal care units.

Each of our midwives is a mother. And, while they know everyone has a different experience of pregnancy and birth, they are able to give you advice and caring support from both a professional and a personal perspective.

Working in partnership with Dr Guy Skinner, they have the skills and experience to help you at every stage of your pregnancy. Before moving into private practice, our midwives have worked in delivery suites, assisting low-risk and high-risk pregnancies and emergency births.
