Introducing Sam

As a student nurse I spent 3 months with a Community Midwife in the seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire, England. This was my inspiration to become a midwife. I loved the relationship that built between the community midwife and women in her care.
As a student midwife I attended my first home birth and was in awe with how the story unfolded at home, such a normal, special and privileged time in a woman’s life, I was honoured to be a part of her journey. I’m passionate about continuing to provide a gold standard of care, in a calm quiet & enabling atmosphere.
