Who am I? My name is Jayden and I am a practising Midwife with a passion for antenatal education! (I also have a strong interest in educating student midwives, hence this page also containing student midwife webinars.) Whilst it can be good ‘to go with the flow’ for birth,it is important to know your options and be able to advocate for yourself or partner. I have worked in both the hospital and community settings, so have knowledge on hospital, birth centre and home births. Additionally, I have trained and/or worked in 3 out of 4 of the maternity hospitals surrounding Wells, so have knowledge of different options and policies at these hospitals.
