Welcome to the Kent Midwifery Practice blog. Kent Midwifery Practice is a partnership of independent midwives, Virginia Howes and Kay Hardie. You can read more about us on the Kent Midwifery Practice website.
We are Independent Midwives who practise in Kent and South-East London. An Independent Midwife is a fully qualified midwife who works in a self-employed capacity, outside the NHS. Like NHS midwives, we are closely regulated and supervised (our supervisors are NHS Supervisors of Midwives), but unlike most NHS midwives, we can provide one-to-one care for a woman throughout her pregnancy and birth.
We'll be using this blog to muse on various pregnancy and birth issues which our clients ask about, and which we thought other people might find useful. We'll also use it to keep friends up-to-date with news about our practice.
