From a very young age, Kate has been fascinated with pregnancy and birth and as she became older, wanted to help women and their families navigate this new journey into parenting; so retained as a midwife following a career in law and project management.  Kate qualified as a Midwife in 2010 and has worked in a variety of settings in Central Delivery Suite, Birth Centre, Community and Home Birth team.  Following the birth of her first daughter, she completed additional training to become a Health Visitor and now works primarily with vulnerable and ‘at risk’ families.  Kate is also a breastfeeding key worker and disseminates evidence-based practice to her peers as well as the families that she works alongside.

Kate is passionate about antenatal education as a means of increasing participants knowledge from current evidence based practice, thus enabling them to achieve a sense of control over their birth process and manage expectations in the early days of parenthood, even if this doesn’t go according to plan; and also a way of increasing couples social interaction, reducing social isolation and feelings of vulnerability which are very common in new parents.

Kate lives in Thornbury with her husband Andy and daughters Phoebe and Primrose.
