My name is Sheridan Thomas, I am an independent midwife who provides caseloading care for women and their families.
I am passionate about providing a flexible and woman-centred service and I believe that this is promoted when strong, trusting relationships are built between the woman and her midwife and that pregnancy and birth outcomes are enhanced as a result.
I have cared for many women in challenging situations whereby their care has fallen outside of hospital policy, and therefore have become accustomed to fighting for their rights to autonomy over their own health. These experiences have shaped my practice and through it, I have become extremely passionate about women’s health rights and their right to compassionate care, despite what their health decisions may be.
I work alongside Georgia to provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy from early pregnancy, with flexible appointments offered at home to suit the needs of you and your family. Regardless of where you choose to have your baby, we are on call for your birth and will provide labour care to you in your own home or birth support in a hospital of your choice. Following your birth, myself or Georgia will care for you throughout your postnatal period and support you during this precious transition into parenthood. We specialise in perinatal mental health and so we are aware of how challenging the early postnatal period can be, and how crucial excellent support is during this time.
