The Beginnings of Womb & Bloom
Womb & Bloom was conceived in the coffee houses of North London. Victoria and Nadia, having been connected by a mutual friend, spent hours discussing a shared passion for all things pregnancy, birth and parenthood. Realisation of the opportunity to work together quickly emerged. The idea of offering birthing women and people unique packages, preparation classes and products was very exciting,
Womb and Bloom London was born!!
The NHS system is beyond stretched, impacting on all maternity services, home-births and continuity of care. Womb and Bloom London are able to offer you fully insured Independent midwifery care with the full support of a doula presence, plus much more, from a team of wonderful specialist birth workers.
As part of your birth team, we can offer 1-2-1 fully held, continuity of care midwife & doula packages through your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. You can relax, grow and bloom with confidence.

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!
