Founder of Let's Talk Birth and Baby
AboutMy name is Louise and I am a Senior Registered Midwife, Mum of two, the founder of Let's Talk Birth and Baby and the honesty behind Instagrams The Honest Midwife.
I have worked in health services for 25 years and love the work I do within the field of Midwifery. Two years ago I decided that I wanted to have more continuity with families and so started providing antenatal and postnatal support, advice and education to new and expectant parents.
Over the last two years my work has taken a strong focus towards anticipating, recognising and supporting those susceptible or experiencing mental health problems both during pregnancy and following the arrival of a new baby and in particular acknowledging that partners can also struggle during this time.
Having a baby is one of the most wonderful experiences however as with all things worthwhile raising children can be challenging and at times a little scary. By opening as many lines of communication as possible and being honest about these challenges it is my hope that the road can maybe be made just a little less bumpy.
