Abi qualified as a midwife in 2017 and works at Southmead Hospital in Bristol on the Central Delivery Suite.

Abi’s passion is providing evidence-based, holistic care to women and their families, particularly those who need a medical birth setting. This is rooted in Abi’s belief that regardless of how you experience pregnancy and birth, good support and information is the key to creating a positive birth experience.

Abi has experience of working in antenatal and postnatal care, and was also part of a home-birth team before moving to the Central Delivery Suite. Before and during her midwifery career, Abi has enjoyed volunteering for various woman-centered services in Bristol.
