BSc (Hons) Midwife
Hey there I’m Michelle and I get it! The whirlwind of becoming a parent can be overwhelming. With 15 years of midwifery under my belt and a proud mother of two wonderful boys (not forgetting my supportive husband and spotty 4 legged friend), I have been in your shoes. When I took my own journey into parenthood I was not a midwife at the time. I had based my expectations on experiences of others and not realising that each journey is unique to each of us.
I have been through those moments where every word of advice felt like a wild card and the overwhelming feeling of having too much information at times.
During my journey as a Midwife within a local maternity trust and community setting I have had the opportunity to gain experience caring and supporting women and their families through their journey of pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods. I have had the pleasure of working within obstetric maternity units upon their delivery suites, postnatal wards and midwifery led units. I have also delivered antenatal classes within the NHS setting.
It was my experience of becoming a midwife that drove me to create a space where expecting parents like you can find not just guidance but a supportive community. Our classes are not just about information they are about building friendships, sharing stories and creating connections that extend far beyond the due date.
I understand that the unknowns of pregnancy and birth can be daunting and that is why we founded B.L.O.O.M.
