Claire Chaubert BSc (Hons) LCCH RSHom RM
I have been involved in birth for the last 10 years - initially as a professional homeopath and birth supporter and later as a midwife.
I have a passionate belief in women's power and capacity to birth and in their right to make their own choices. As an independent, private midwife I have chosen to work outside the NHS as I am committed to providing individualised personal care and supporting women and their families to have fulfilling and positive birth experiences - without the strict time limits, rules and procedures often inherent to hospital births.
I have a particular interest in home vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC/HBAC) and in helping and supporting women regain their health and well-being after previous traumatic birth including those experiencing PTSD so that they can face pregnancy and birth without fear.
I take my inspiration from the work of Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives (Tennessee) and have undertaken Advanced Midwifery training at The Farm. I recommend Ina May Gaskin's Spiritual Midwifery and her Guide to Childbirth! I use a range of holistic methods to help women throughout their pregnancy, birth and postnatally including homeopathy, reflexology, hypnobirthing, sterile water injections for pain, rebozo technique for spinning/turning babies, massage, etc.
I live in Canterbury, Kent and work alongside a network of other independent private midwives in London and the South East.
Contact me for a no obligation chat or if you have any questions. For independent private midwifery care I normally arrange a home visit for an initial consultation to see if I am the right midwife for you: 07849 511 771 Claire @Great Expectations Midwifery.
