Karen and Dee looked after me with my first pregnancy three years ago and they were so amazing there was no question about going back to DueWest for my second pregnancy this year. Karen and Sarah looked after me this time around and they were absolutely wonderful. These incredible ladies make you feel so comfortable and genuinely care for mother and child. They address any concerns you have and consult you every step of the way, in my opinion they are the perfect example of what midwives and their care should be like. I felt able to contact them any time or day pre and post my son's birth with any issue and I was always meet with help, advice and a comforting ear, this quality in particular makes them truly special. Even throughout many different feeding issues I never felt pressured to try or do anything that wasn't in my and my son's best interests. I cannot speak more highly of Karen and Sarah  and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to family or friends. We consider Karen and Sarah part of the family; if and when we are blessed with #3 there's no doubt where we will be going for our maternity care.

We enlisted the help of Due West midwives for our second child after having a fantastic experience with them the first time around. For our first child we had Karen and Dee, and for our second child we had the help of Karen and Sarah. My husband and I loved the duel approach taken at Due West. Having both midwives involved throughout both of my pregnancies meant that if one of them was called away to another birth, sick or on holiday, we had peace of mind that we knew the other would be there for us. It gave us continuity in our care. Both Karen and Sarah were easy to approach, calm (which was great given both of our children were premature babies and I was anxious!), calm and totally professional. Karen delivered our son and Sarah delivered our daughter. They were both calm and reassuring when dealing with a premature birth and communicated with us well. I felt safe with them at a time that I felt most vulnerable and nervous. Their antenatal and postnatal support was superb.

I had a wonderful experience with Karen and Sarah as my LMC for my second pregnancy. I felt that my questions and concerns were always taken seriously and I felt supported throughout my entire pregnancy. As well as having Karen as my main midwife it was amazing getting to know Sarah as well because I knew that if Karen wasn't available I had Sarah's support, who I also had gotten to know very well.

My baby's birth was a wonderful experience. Although it didn't go to my initial plan for various reasons (a VBAC) I felt that Karen went out of her way to ensure it was a lovely experience for my husband and I.

We loved having the support of both Karen and Sarah in the 6 weeks following the birth. They were always available when we had concerns and quickly referred us down the appropriate channels when we initlally  had concerns about our baby's health. We also have 2 year old twins and Karen and Sarah always made sure the timing of their visits worked well with our family.

Thank you Karen and Sarah, I would recommend you both to my family and friends in a heartbeat.

I had Karen (and Dee) for my first pregnancy and went back again for my second pregnancy with Karen and this time Sarah.
One word describes all of these ladies...AMAZING.
Both pregnancies and labours each had their complications and you couldn't ask for more supportive ladies. I felt totally relaxed and reassured being under their care.
In particular with my second pregnancy, unfortunately I was experiencing a very rare complication where I was going to lose one of my twins.
With such a bittersweet and emotional time, I felt at ease with Karen and Sarah.
Sarah was at the birth and she was just beautiful and really looked after me and also made sure I had momento's to keep for my stillborn son.
Both Karen and Sarah really looked after me post-natal while my son was in SCBU. They not only take care of your baby, but they make sure mum is well supported as well.
I highly recommend using Karen and Sarah for your pregnancies, you won't be disappointed.

Our little boy is turning 6 weeks and we just had our last midwife appointment... It has been fantastic to share this journey with Sarah and Karen and we will definitely miss them. I have the feeling that we could not have been in better hands, both Sarah and Karen are very professional, experienced, passionate, understanding and fun! Although Sarah was our LMC, Karen was on call for the birth. She was exceptional... Despite ending up in an emergency c-section, Karen gave me the feeling that I was in control through the whole process. At each stage of labor she explained us what were our options and their impact. After a seamless transition, Sarah ensured the postnatal care. Her help was priceless. She helped us resolve all these little problems that make you worried in the first weeks of having a baby (difficulty latching, winds, etc.) and was always available to answer our questions. I highly recommend their services to anyone.
