About

 

Welcome! Thank you for visiting eve’smamaSlide12

We are a midwife led care provider that is dedicated to providing quality, evidence based care and support to parents and their families during the Pre-pregnancy, Pregnancy, Birth and Early Parenting Phases of their life.

We believe in a woman’s ability to birth her baby and we provide practical guidance, support and information to build her confidence and enable her to make informed choices on how and where to birth. We believe the experience of childbirth is beyond the physical event, and is a profound emotional, mental and spiritual experience for both the mother and her family.

We are passionate about what we do and believe and practice the principles and philosophical cornerstones of mother-friendly care which states as follows:

  • Birth is a normal, natural, and healthy process.
  • The midwifery model of care, which supports and protects the normal birth process, is the most appropriate for the majority of women during pregnancy and birth.
  • Women and babies have the inherent wisdom necessary for birth. Babies are aware, sensitive human beings at the time of birth, and should be acknowledged and treated as such.
  • Birth can safely take place in hospitals, birth centers, and homes.
  • Breastfeeding provides the optimum nourishment for newborns and infants.

We therefore provide one to one care that is personalized and holistic. We ensure that every parent has the chance to create a relationship of trust with a midwife who knows what they want and truly respects their wishes. We embrace collaboration with others and will involve Physicians, Obstetricians, Pediatricians, Counsellors, Massage Therapists and other care providers when need arises.

Meet the Midwives

IMG_1929It is a great privilege to be a Midwife. I believe and understand that the experience of being pregnant and being a new parent can be greatly enhanced by having continuity of care and regular support.

My journey as a Midwife began after I made a decision I consider to be one of the best in my life, become a midwife after by Nursing Course.  I was registered by the Nursing Council of Kenya as licensed Midwife in 1999.

My practice as a Midwife and as a mother led to the realization that the need for more empowerment, education, guidance and capacity for expectant and new parents was dire, I was the change I was waiting for hence the foundation of eve’smama.

I have helped many families and I have a strong belief in the sanctity of human life which I combine with a practical understanding of the processes of childbirth.

I encourage you to be fully informed and in control through having a greater understanding of your own body. Being empowered helps you manage the pregnancy and birth better.

8x10 c (1)Am a Registered nurse with 8 years of experience in both general nursing and Midwifery. Being a nurse-midwife gives me the opportunity to empower couples as they nurture their unborn child, make important birth choices, and ensuring they make healthy choices during the first few weeks with their newborn.

The joy in being a Nurse-Midwife, is that I get to care for couples during the prenatal period, share knowledge and help them trust in the process of birth. Creating a comfortable environment as they welcome their newborn, helping them transition into parenthood gives me such delight too.
Birth is such a beautiful process, if you prepare your mind, you’ve already done 50% of the journey, the remaining part is for your body to do what it knows how to do best!

Birth well; “Here with You”
