After having a very impersonal and negative first birth experience using the NHS midwifery services, we chose to invest in a more tailored approach and are so pleased that we took up the wonderfully personal & empowering services of Rachel Buisson-Lex and the Wessex Midwifery Team. Given we fell pregnant in early 2020 the series of Lockdowns and requirements to shield naturally added to the normal load of pregnancy anxieties, however, we can honestly say that being able to talk to Rachel and see her in the comfort and safety of our own home was a blessing. Rachel also completed each of the blood tests and heel prick test for baby at home saving us from unnecessary GP/hospital trips. It would take far too many words to explain and describe our life changing experience with the guidance and care of Rachel and the team. But, put simply, there is no better way of doing it all without the wonderful services of Wessex Midwives, nothing was too much trouble and we were always put at ease even in the toughest of moments. Our only regret is that we wish we had invested in the experience with our first child. Huge thanks always, Kris & Sophia Iona, New Forest.
