The Birth Team
The birth team was created by Mr Richard Sheridan and midwife, Sarah Denning. Their philosophy is to offer a holistic service to all families, where all the care, from pregnancy appointments, ultra sound scans, birth preparation/parenting classes, private postnatal midwife home visits and complementary treatments can be accessed through the Birth Team, so that families feel supported by familiar faces all the way through their childbirth experience.
