Midwifery Drop In: 2 new venues for 2020!

R&S drop in

Have you got lots of pregnancy/birth/ new baby questions? Would you like to chat with an independent midwife for free? Come along to a free Midwifery Drop In. At any of the below dates, you can just turn up, or you can contact me here to book a half hour window. This also means I will be able to let you know if I get re-routed to a birth 🙂

Midwifery Drop In @ Shipley’s Kirkgate Community Centre Cafe

with Sharyn of Dales Midwifery Practice (& sometimes other helpful birth workers)

First Fri of the month, 10-12: next one is March 6th, 2020

The Centre is in Shipley, 5 mins walk from bus & train, click for address & map here


Midwifery Drop In @ Broughton Hall’s Cafe Utopia

where I will be, from 10-12, on both Thursday March 12, and Thursday April 9. (These will hopefully continue, but currently will be scheduled dates, rather than a regular timeslot for now.. check here for the next date)

The Broughton Hall Estate is 10 mins by bus from Skipton, click for address and map

You can hear me talk about the Shipley Drop In on Bradford Community Radio…start listening at 49mins+50 seconds in. To correct a slip of the tongue in it – I am not affiliated with any NHS Trust for antenatal and postnatal work, so my drop-in information is not influenced by any particular Trust’s policies. However, when I am attending births, I benefit from the partnership between Yorkshire’s independent midwives and Airedale NHS, read more here.

The Kirkgate Centre also hosts the weekly Hey Mama support group,  for all those experiencing emotional difficulties and mental health issues during pregnancy and after birth. It is a space for Mamas to support one another.

Sometimes you may find me at Bradford Birth Choices, This runs at 7.30pm sporadically, so check the date. Usually at 2 Hollin Wood Close in Saltaire/Shipley, a 15 min walk from the bus stop on Saltaire high street or 30 min walk from Saltaire train station.
