Why choose a neighbourhood midwife?
As expectant parents you are embarking on an amazing and sometimes daunting journey. Sadly, in London, 60% of women don't see the same midwife twice (RCM survey 2012). Care from Neighbourhood Midwives ensures you are supported throughout your journey by a midwife you know and trust.
We believe that having the same dependable, expert by your side is what makes all the difference.
North London Midwives are able to offer full home birth services, birth support in hospital or birth centres and postnatal care packages. It is all about choice and we are here to support you regardless of how or where you choose to birth your baby.
We cover a large area in and around North, North West, South and East London and the home counties.
“Having a midwife I know look after me during labour was the most amazing experience. I knew I could trust her and I could just get on and enjoy the process without any interference. Corina also helped us to achieve breastfeeding success when we were struggling, we owe a lot to her”

Meet your midwives
Corina has been working within the field of pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding for over a decade. Having trained with Dr Michel Odent and Lilliana Lammer in 2002 she began her journey as a doula offering both birth support and after birth care. This was followed by training as a breastfeeding supporter and finally, in answer to the calling, training as a midwife.
"I have a passion for ensuring women feel empowered, informed and supported so that they are able to make truly informed choices throughout pregnancy and experience a positive birth regardless of where or how they choose to bring their babies into the world".
Before joining Neighbourhood Midwives Corina worked as the Specialist Breastfeeding midwife at a large North London hospital.
"My greatest joy is supporting women to confidently feed their babies and seeing them flourish as new parents".
Her career has allowed her to gain experience in all aspects of midwifery care including teaching antenatal education, working in community, birth centre and labour ward.
Corina lives in Northwood and covers the London boroughs of Hillingdon, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Haringey, Barnet, Camden, Islington, Westminster as well as areas in Hertfordshire, Surrey and Berkshire.

To say that I am passionate about my vocation is an understatement. I never cease to be amazed and humbled by the miracle of the human body and women’s natural ability to birth and nurture their babies. I am constantly reminded of the sheer honour to be a part of this precious, intimate and life-affirming period of a new family’s beginning. It is the very essence of why I am a midwife.
Aside from having my two gorgeous sons, who are amazing, the next best thing I’ve ever done is to train as a midwife, initially in South Africa, where midwifery is highly medicalised, and more recently, retraining in the UK where I experienced the world of woman-centered care for the first time.
After two years as a homebirth midwife, I have gravitated to Neighbourhood Midwives as they offer me an unparalleled opportunity to bond with women and their families from day one, and to see them right through to the joyous end. I have always strived to empower women to achieve the birth they want through education, care and support.
Pregnancy and birth is not just a physiological event. It is a life changing, emotional roller-coaster for each individual woman. As the word ‘midwife’ derives from the Nordic phrase ‘with woman’, my job is to truly be with her!
I live in West Drayton, part of the London Borough of Hillingdon, west of London, and roughly cover all areas from Windsor to Richmond and Watford to Cobham.

" I cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Neighbourhood Midwives. We often tell our friends that our investment in Neighbourhood Midwives was the best money we have spent. I only wish we had made the decision sooner and taken full advantage of the knowledge, support and confidence it gave us".

"My husband and I feel that thanks to Monica's support, patience, calm attitude and availability 24/7 to answer any questions/concerns, the transition into parenthood has been made that little bit easier.
We always felt listened to and our worries taken into serious consideration. We felt that no problem was insignificant and Monica was excellent in allaying any fears we had with her calm yet considered professional approach".

Becoming a mother and a midwife are two of my most treasured achievements and experiences. Having heard about some of my friends’ birth experiences, I decided to train as a midwife in order to really make a difference to the women and families I cared for.
After working within the NHS, I came to Neighbourhood Midwives, where every woman receives the continuity of care that they deserve. This type of care enables the women and their families to build a trusting partnership with me, which helps to achieve the best possible outcome for her, her baby and her family.
I love being a midwife and feel truly privileged to being a part of this amazing experience.
I am based in Finchley, North London and cover North London, North West London, East London and surrounds.
