Emma Mills

Private Midwife

Emma is an experienced midwife, practicing in the field of midwifery for over sixteen years, and a mother of two. She feels passionately the need to provide women-centred, one-to-one care to women and their families in the prenatal and postnatal period. It is at these crucial times women can prepare, learn and build confidence to have clear strategies in moving into motherhood and adjusting confidently to their new role, whether it will be your first child or a growing family. Emma practices very much with the goal of achieving a realistic approach to parenting for women.

A message from Emma:

I understand the complex needs of modern women in an age where health systems are stretched and not everyone can afford the luxury of one-to-one private maternity packages. I offer a bridge between NHS maternity care and independent midwifery within the antenatal and postnatal period.

I offer a flexible care package depending on your individual needs and budget. There may be times in your pregnancy or the postnatal period that you need additional support and advice, time to ask questions you didn’t have time to explore at a previous appointment, or to discuss any anxieties you may have. I offer a choice to women for their maternity care provision, with as much or as little as you need. I am only a phone call away.

The service offers a range of individual, tailor-made consultations for the prenatal and postnatal period for women and their families with a designated midwife.

I am a qualified and practicing midwife here in the UK and have practiced abroad . I have worked within the NHS, private practice, the charity sector and independent midwifery, providing prenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care to women in hospital, birth centres and the community.

I have worked within high risk units in London, New Zealand and Sussex and was the sole midwifery advisor for a private obstetric practice in central London.

I ran and managed a team of specialist midwives to provide pregnancy health information for women and their families through multiple communications platforms and set up and project managed helpline services for national charities.

I am the sole midwifery advisor to Boots UK and act as their midwifery spokesperson, providing regular press interviews on topical clinical issues.

I am a practicing midwife here in Sussex and am registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council – NMC and a member of a professional Union – Royal College of Nursing . I hold insurance to provide routine antenatal and postnatal care in the UK as a sole midwifery practitioner.
