“The satisfaction I get out of my job is incredible. I love being able to provide the continuity of midwifery care that every woman should have, and knowing that I have made a real difference to a woman’s experience of birth.” Rebecca Denny, 40, My Midwives Midwife “I feel so lucky to have graduated from university and to be employed in a private midwifery practice.
