Welcome to Midwife and Life, it’s lovely to have you here.  What you’ll find is an interesting cocktail of pregnancy and parenting, my family life and my experiences, product and service reviews (anything and everything), blogging support and advice tailored towards fellow parent bloggers.  Jump in and take a look, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I accept guest posts, particularly birth stories. My aim is to help women feel empowered about their pregnancy and birth (however it happens) and feel confident with their new baby.

About me:

I’m Jenny, I am a mother to three young children: William (born 2009) who has to be prised away from his Xbox and his beloved Minecraft and we fight for the computer as he likes to play Roblox; Phoebe (born 2011) who’s feminine, determined, feisty and independent. She loves school, ballet, books and make up! Then there’s my whirlwind Daniel (born 2014 under the Christmas tree) who’s my baby and is the cutest, cheekiest little boy. He loves trains, running and Mummy. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, who is wonderful despite my moans for 13 years with more than our fair share of ups and downs which has made us stronger as a couple.

I have  worked as a midwife for 14 years both in a hospital setting and in the community and I’m passionate about giving great care to women and families.  I currently work more as a blogger and adviser but still do work shifts occasionally either in the main hospital or the stand alone birth centre. At the moment I’m working as a nurse in a local nursing home as it fits in with the children and home life plus it’s so rewarding. I am also a full time blogger, vlogger, occasional TV and Film Extra and parent of course!
