Before we get to know you, here’s a little bit about us!
Karen Little RN RM
Hi I’m Karen! Foremost a midwife and mother of three, one of which was a born at home, but also a nurse and horticulturalist! My full-time work as a team lead community midwife also includes delivery suite and maternity triage. I am also qualified to undertake newborn medical assessments as well as being a tongue-tie and frenulectomy specialist. I have recently taken on the role of Homebirth lead for the MTW Trust. One of my greatest pleasures is seeing the friendships that grow and develop between expectant couples on our Birthplus courses.
Chrissie Wade RN RM BSc Hons
Antenatal and postnatal care, home deliveries and waterbirths have been my life’s work as a midwife, but presenting antenatal classes for BirthPlus is my real joy. Preparing couples for their first birth experience is a real privilege. As well as being a midwife of more than 35 years, I am also proudly a mother of three which helps me to bring practical insight from both sides of the business of birth! I have qualified in maternity aromatherapy and moxibustion and am Fedant Registered. Working closely with Karen we founded BirthPlus together and have been sharing our midwifery know-how for many years. We continue to explore ways to make our antenatal classes foremost evidence-based and informative, but always fun and sociable.
