Katie started her midwifery journey in 2010. She worked as a community midwife for four years, prior to taking her maternity leave in 2019 and returning back to a senior midwifery role just before the start of the pandemic. Coming from a Sociology background, Katie is particularly passionate about how the experience of childbirth impacts women, both physically and emotionally - and believes that with the right preparation, you are more likely to look back positively on your birth experience. Having recently achieved the birth of her dreams, with Leila as her Midwife, Katie is a huge advocate of hypnobirthing. Ask her anything, and she'll gladly share the reality of her experience of labour and birth! She is currently undertaking her masters in Midwifery.
