Welcome to my website. My name is Eleanor May-Johnson and I am an independent midwife based in Southampton, Hampshire - I cover a wide area, including all of Hampshire and parts of Dorset, Wiltshire and East Sussex (please look at the Geographical Areas Covered). I provide a personalised, independent midwifery service to women and their partners who are planning or considering a homebirth. I also provide care to women who are planning a hospital birth - although my role is that of advocate and supporter in these circumstances
I believe that the birth of a baby is the single most precious moment in any parents' life and am passionate about providing individualized, personal care to women and their families. I strongly believe that most women can give birth to their babies with minimum intervention, provided they feel safe, secure and well supported. I feel that midwifery is a calling for me and feel very privileged to be able to spend this special and important time with the families I work with
I hope that you enjoy looking around my site and seeing some of the babies I have been privileged to help bring into the world. Please do not hesitate to get in touch either by email or phone for an informal chat or advice.
Still open for business!
You may be aware that Independent Midwifery will cease in the UK in Oct 2013, however, I am still taking clients who have a due date up to and including 10th Oct 2013.
