Midwives

Cathy McCormick
HolisticBaby Consultant and Owner, Postnatal Midwife

I believe that by creating a Calm Mother, Calm Father and Calm Baby then a positive life as a family can then be embraced, and restoring the balance that suits each families individual needs is achievable.

I am a Mother of 3 children, a Midwife, an Antenatal Class Teacher, and I have facilitated Mothers Support Groups. I have practiced as a Midwife for the past 20yrs and prior to that I was a Comprehensive Nurse working mainly in the Psychiatric field. I also have experience as a Nanny and Maternity nurse to families in Europe. I have experience as an Independent Midwife, as a Postnatal Midwife to Private Obstetricians, as well as a Hospital midwife - and I have a good understanding of MEDICAL PRACTICES. Over the years, I have gained an interest in many NATURAL IDEAS - especially "What solutions are already in your cupboard" and Homoeopathy, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, and Ayurvedic medicine.

I believe that having an HOLISTIC APPROACH and looking at all options available will allow for a confident Mother and Father who can enjoy a Calm and Happy Baby.
