Telephone number: 07884321470

Caroline worked for 20 years as an Independent Midwife in Dorset, loving the relationship with her clients and their families and supporting women through a huge variety of births and birth journeys.

She recently retired from Independent practice but continues to hold her midwifery registration and works part-time as a Breastfeeding Educator within an NHS setting, as she is passionate about breastfeeding and supporting women to do so.

Caroline has recently started studying on a preliminary counselling course, with a view to eventually providing counselling to women with birth fears or who have suffered emotionally after a difficult birth.

Caroline also runs a small private business providing placenta encapsulation (placenta pills) services to the women of Dorset and surrounding counties. Cost: £160. Please see the Placenta Encapsulation page under Our Services for more information. 

She has had the pleasure of providing this service for both new and returning clients over the years and has had excellent and positive feedback about her service.

Caroline has a grown-up daughter and a son who was born at home many years ago. She also has two lovely grandsons.

"We cannot thank you enough for all the kindness, patience and support you have given our family.....It was so special to be able to feel safe, trusting and confident with the care you were providing and it was great that it enabled us all to get to know you at home..."
