I will be forever thankful that I had Erika as my midwife. I was hesitant to pay for an independent midwife but it was the best decision we could have made. After a traumatic pregnancy and birth with my son I needed reassurance and continuity of care, Erika gave us this and more. She ensured we were fully informed about the options for every little decision and supported us completely in our choices whilst never making us feel pressured.
Erika is very knowledgeable, thoughtful and funny, she made my husband and I feel completely at ease and involved our son which was brilliant. She listened to us and informed herself fully on my multiple health conditions. Erika helped us understand and manage a late diagnosis of ICP and I honestly believe that without her I would never have had the VBAC water birth at home that I was so desperate for. She truly deserves midwife of the year.
