WP_20160104_10_54_12_ProHi 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.

A2015-12-02 10.45.35ntenatal and postnatal care, home deliveries and waterbirths have been my life’s work as a midwife, but providing 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. 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. More recently retired I am now administration lead for BirthPlus

Carrie Grayston RM BSc Hons
Hi, I’m Carrie, a mum of one and the newest member of the BirthPlus team. I  run the classes at Crowborough Birth Centre and Sevenoaks.  I grew up in Crowborough and studied Midwifery in 2005 at Keele University. Before moving to Tunbridge Wells hospital in 2011, I worked as a hospital midwife in Guildford, Surrey. I have experience in the community and hospital, and have previously taught parent education for the NHS. I am currently working in the transitional care team specialising in looking after newborn babies who need a little extra input in their first few days of life, and have recently taken on a new role as Development Midwife for the MTW Trust. It really is a great pleasure supporting families at this special time. What I enjoy about BirthPlus classes is not only providing birth prep information but  making the experience fun and memorable. I know first-hand how easy it is to make new friends at the BirthPlus course.
Are you a midwife and interested in joining our friendly team?
