Todays guest is Marie Louise, or as you may know her The Modern Midwife, an internationally practicing senior midwife.
By 20 Marie Louise had completed a midwifery degree qualifying as one of the youngest midwives in the U.K. Since then Marie Louise has made it her mission to help women have better births and smoother postnatal periods.
Alongside her role as a midwife her recent work involves delivering antenatal education for Mothercare, volunteering for Child Org as a communications partner, blogging for the Huffington post, becoming an in-house midwife for Emma Buntons company Kit & Kin, becoming a social media influencer and writing clinical guidelines on Neonatal Skincare. She also has her own Podcast (which you can listen to here) where she discusses a range of topics with mothers and healthcare professionals.
She admits her whole world and life revolves around improving maternal and newborn health because babies of today shape the world of tomorrow. What I love about Marie Louise is that she is helping to bring midwives knowledge to the masses. This is a luxury we haven’t always had. For many labour was something to fear and know little about whereas Marie Louise is helping to spread her knowledge in a way that is digestible to those who don’t work in healthcare.
Her passion for midwifery really comes through on this podcast and I hope you all find it useful and inspiring. If you know a mother-to-be or future midwife please do pass this on and leave us a review if you enjoyed it.
