Virginia Howes, RN,RM,BSc(HONS)
I am Virginia Howes and I live in Ashford Kent. I have a very close grown up and an extended family of an ever growing circle of past clients, many of which I am still in touch with years later.
I adore my job and feel passionate about the rights of women to have a good childbirth experience and receive true informed choice. I am a specialist and very experienced in physiological birth including the care of women who have been deemed “high risk” many of which can and do achieve normal home births. I support and help women at home and in hospitals to achieve the pregnancy and birth they want.
Watch me providing continuity of care to these wonderful women who shared their home birth experience on ITV.
I am qualified to perform the initial examination of the newborn traditionally carried out by a paediatrician. I have several birth pools, T.E.N.S. machines, birthing balls, a vast library of books and a wonderful birthing stool that I loan to clients free of charge.
When I'm not working I love going to our family home in Turkey and one day would like to retire there and help the local woman to give birth.
