  • Alexis was just amazing, not only does she really know her stuff as an experienced midwife, but she has a real natural calmness about her that put me at ease from the very beginning. Sarah
  • My pregnancy sickness sessions benefitted me so much when I was literally at my worst. I couldn’t have gone through the first few months without Alexis. Claudia
  • I can’t sing Alexis’s praises highly enough. I was so anxious about having my 3rd baby but Alexis talked me through my fears and gave me loads of practical tools for overcoming them and staying in control, which for me was the deal breaker that transformed my 3rd and last birth experience.
