Head shot of Independent Midwife Lucinda Rae smiling and wearing glasses






I want to change the discourse in pregnancy towards health, joy and wellbeing and away from focusing disproportionately on risk. I take a holistic approach to health professionally and personally and my care is about supporting you and your new family to be as healthy, happy, strong and informed as possible.

We never forget the birth of our babies, and how the words and actions of those supporting us made us feel. Pregnancy, birth and babies are unpredictable but that doesn't mean we can't stack the cards in our favour by being well informed and seeking out the support of professionals who share our philosophy and values. I can help you prepare and plan for your birth and provide loving support at every stage of your journey. 


Services include -


One-off antenatal consultations - for when you want a second opinion or support in decision making.

Antenatal only or antenatal & postnatal - perhaps you have an elective caesarean planned or are birthing elsewhere in the country or abroad. 

Full antenatal, labour & birth, postnatal - expert midwifery support throughout your whole journey from conception to when your baby is four weeks old. 

Postnatal packages - small, medium and large. 


"Lucinda, we are so happy we got to count on your support and kindness for the birth of our baby. You provided me with a sense of security beyond what words can describe. You're gifted and we hope you share your gift with many more families."

"Thank you for listening to me and respecting me, but most importantly for trusting and believing in me."
