Pregnancy Wakefield

Doulas and Independent Midwives

Claire Harbottle, Leeds

Working independently allows me to provide the level of individualised midwifery care I would want for my daughter when she begins her journey into motherhood.
I was fascinated by pregnancy and birthing as an artist and my decision to retrain was grounded in my fundamental belief in women’s bodies and their amazing processes.
I love the collaborative approach independent midwifery facilitates, and being able to offer truly personalised, evidence based and responsive continuity of care. I genuinely love this job!

Hannah Beety, Leeds

I am based in Leeds, covering mainly North and West Yorkshire, although I’m happy to consider nearby areas. I became a midwife because I truly believe that compassionate, loving midwifery care will change a woman’s life; and that of her partner and family. I want every pregnant woman to have the opportunity to enjoy her pregnancy, whilst feeling confident and relaxed in her choices and ability to grow and birth a baby. I have five children and have experienced a range of maternity services from a variety of angles, both as a client and practitioner. I also run the Leeds Community Birthpool Hire scheme, enabling women in the Leeds area to access birth pools for home births.

Helen Scarlett, Doula (non-clinical)

Covering Wakefield, Barnsley and Huddersfield

I firmly believe that giving birth should be a positive experience and this can often be achieved through having the continuous support of a doula. I do not perform any clinical tasks, my role is to complement the care of the midwife and other health professionals and to provide continuous support to you. I am not employed by the hospital, but by yourself.
