Your village for pregnancy, birth & postpartum in London.

​Womb and Bloom London was born out of a love of nature, pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood.

 

Womb & Bloom is an alliance of specialised birth professionals dedicated to nurturing confidence in women, individuals, and their partners throughout the entire birth journey, from conception through pregnancy, childbirth, and into the postpartum period.

The NHS system is beyond stretched, impacting all maternity services, home births, and continuity of care. Womb and Bloom London can offer you a full spectrum of support, from fully insured Independent midwifery care to doula care and support from a team of wonderful specialist birth workers.

We are an inclusive group and look forward to working with you to encourage you to take ownership and empower yourself to birth and parent your way from an informed and supported place.

We offer continuity of care packages to protect, prepare and expand your understanding, but most importantly, to listen intently as you slowly bloom as new parents.

As a group, we speak and meet regularly to support each other and our clients, providing a well-nourished, professional support network.

Please get in touch with any questions. We'd love to hear from you.

We have an Access Fund

At W&B, we have set up a GO FUND ME PAGE where you can donate to our access fund. If you believe in what we do and offer in this community, please consider donating something to support local families. We launched the access fund in Dec 2022 and have already supported five families with doula, midwife, practitioner and 1-2-1 services. We wish to reach many more. 

 

We transfer 2% of all midwife & doula package fees & 10% of all group course booking fees to the access fund. Victoria & friends have run half marathons to raise funds and plan for more in 2024.

The W&B access pot allows clients to use the funds for our antenatal, birth, and postnatal services. Our set prices can be reviewed individually based on needs and wishes. For more information on our access fund, click here.

 

If you feel you meet the criteria for the access fund, please apply here. We cannot guarantee that we will meet your wishes, but we can offer something to meet your support requirements. Our access fund is a new and growing pot.

What People Say

I cannot recommend Victoria more highly. She is wonderfully empathetic, positive, caring, calm and could not have done a better job in any way. Without Victoria, our birth experience would have no way been as calm and positive.

Thank you for your guidance, awareness, sensitivity and positive strength that made Jess' labour and Zerah's birth the most beautiful experience I have ever been humbled enough to be present at. The way that you took in what was happening in reality and balanced that with the theoretical is truly at talent. Your wisdom and gentle courage gave us the confidence to realise our little girls perfect start.

The course was incredibly useful to hear from first hand experience both from a doula and midwife perspective. I really enjoyed hearing the stories of births you facilitated. For me, it made all the things I had already read come to life and more accessible.I felt more confident after the course in my decisions, how to talk to my NHS midwife and what questions to raise.

Having had a challenging experience with my first birth, I decided to meet Victoria and Nadia when I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I booked the midwife + doula package and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

 

Having these incredibly experienced, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and empowering women by my side throughout pregnancy, labour and for two weeks postpartum allowed me to work through my fears, be better informed and have a truly positive birth.

 

I wish every mother-to-be could have Victoria and Nadia!
