Kathryn Weymouth – Registered Midwife
I grew up in the USA, moving to England in 1997 to follow my dream to become a midwife. I qualified as a massage therapist in 1993 and continue to practice although very part time. I have two children Alicia, aged 24 and Elliot ,12 (born at home). I run a birth choices support group in my area and volunteer with the local NCT. I am passionate about birth being a normal life event rather than a medical condition.
I provide comprehensive midwifery care to the women in Hampshire and it’s surrounding counties. I work with other experienced midwives who, where appropriate, will provide back up i.e. attendance at home birth and cover for holidays. Together with other professional colleagues we form a fantastic network of support.

I am also a member of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), National Childbirth Trust (NCT), Association of Radical Midwives (ARM), Le Leche League (LLL) and Association for Improvements in Maternity Services (AIMS).
