Our midwives are vaccinated and regularly do lateral flow tests. We will not visit you if we are ill, we are currently wearing masks and this is under constant review. We do not expect you to wear masks but we would like you to inform us before we visit if you or anyone in your household is ill. If you have viral symptoms we won’t visit but will offer a video appointment until you are better.
We would request that you let us know if you or anyone in your household has symptoms so that we can avoid visiting at this time. If you have Covid symptoms or test positive it will be recommended that you have a hospital birth.

Many pregnant women are not getting enough antenatal care at the moment because of the Covid 19 pandemic. The NHS were already overstretched and are now having to restrict face to face appointments in many areas. This is to reduce infection rates and may also be due to lower staffing levels. This may mean that you could be experiencing long gaps without seeing midwives in a time when you may be experiencing increased anxiety and isolation.
During a video appointment with Sage Femme we will be able to chat to you about your pregnancy and birth plans. We will not be able to physically examine you but can give you general pregnancy advice and review any blood results and scan reports that you have. Any information that you have been given regarding your pregnancy we can discuss with you so that you have the opportunity to ask about things you may not have understood from your current care providers. We will not be contradicting their advice but just ensuring that you feel well informed.
We have experience of giving antenatal classes and working within the NHS as well as years of experience at homebirths. We can help you put together birth plans, discuss topics such as when to go to the hospital, when to pack a bag and what should be in it, pain relief options, how to avoid tearing and so much more.
For the first time it means that we can speak to women outside of the London area.
