Independent Midwives in Hertfordshire and Surrounding Areas


Amelia Parker
I am a midwife with over 20 years experience working in London, Essex and Hertfordshire. I undertook my professional training within the United Kingdom. I have worked within both hospital and community environments as a midwife and a health visitor. Immediately prior to becoming an Independent Midwife I worked as a Specialist Midwife at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel London, supporting the practice and development of other midwives and junior doctors. The Royal London is a large teaching hospital. While working there I was involved in the development of care pathways, guidelines and audit. This has helped develop and enhance my midwifery practice. I continue to occasionally work at my local National Health Service [NHS] unit to maintain my acute clinical skills.

I have been practicing as a midwife since 2003 working for 2 years in the NHS, then 5 years in a private birth centre before becoming an independent midwife. I am currently studying for my diploma in complementary therapies for midwives which will enable me to offer mums various therapies including pregnancy massage, reflexology and homeopathy.

Viv Gray
I’ve been a midwife since 2001, and in Independent Practice since 2007. I believe every woman in labour should be cared for by a midwife she knows and trusts. The opportunity to develop a relationship with a family during pregnancy, be present at the birth of their baby, and continue to care for them in their early days together is the most amazing privilege imaginable.

Carole Goddard
My interest and passion for midwifery really commenced with the birth of my daughter. I received excellent training and experience working within a North London Trust and the community of Haringey, however I became disillusioned with the financial pressures, fragmented care and politics within the NHS, seeking an alternative way of working and caring for women and families during the most important and life changing period of pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.

Cristina Antunes
I have been working in the NHS for nine years now and decided I needed be somewhere that allows me to build a close, trustful relation with the women I care for. I feel that every new family should be able to trust their midwife and have continuity of care. I am passionate about midwifery and providing safe, individualized care for you and your partner, enabling you to make decisions about your own care that will lead to a positive birth experience and a smooth transition into parenthood.

Anna von Hörsten
I am a midwife with my whole heart and convinced that women-centred and women-led care leads to the best possible outcomes. Working closely with women, their partner and family enables me to provide care that is both personal and tailored to their needs. I completed my midwifery training in a large private hospital in Hamburg, Germany, and also worked in a midwife-led birth house (Geburtshaus) in Bamberg. I’m experienced in pelvic floor classes and baby swimming. I am furthering my studies part-time at King’s College London which enables me to keep up to date with the latest research and evidence-based results.

After qualifying, I worked in the NHS for four years but always dreamed of working as a holistic, caseload midwife. In contrast to the NHS, working for Neighbourhood Midwives allows me to get to know my clients as individuals and support them through more than just the physiological phases of pregnancy. I am able to share in the highs and lows, the laughter and the tears.

Elaine Batchelor – Thames Valley Neighbourhood Midwives
Covering Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and parts of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire
I have been practicing as a midwife since 1985 and to me being with a family when a baby is born is still as magical as the first time I was privileged to help a new life into the world. I have three grown up children who appear to be very knowledgeable about ‘where babies come from’ thanks to having a mum who is totally passionate about her work!


Veronica Parker – Thames Valley Neighbourhood Midwives
Covering Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and parts of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire
Working for Neighbourhood Midwives means that I can truly be ‘with woman’. I feel privileged to be able to support and nurture women when they are at their most vulnerable, but also their most powerful, during pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. I have deeply held beliefs that pregnancy and childbirth are normal, physiological events to be nurtured and respected through the provision of holistic, woman and family centred care.

Kemi Johnson

Kemi was preparing financial statements for charities for 22 years and a voluntary doula for 10 years before succumbing to her passion to become a midwife, a passion she’d had from the age of 15. Since then, Kemi has indulged her fascination with birthing anatomy and physiology and her yearning for women to reclaim their knowledge and power to birth without interruption or interference.
