Hi, I'm Marie Louise, also known as the Modern Midwife.
I have been an NHS midwife for over a decade and so have lots of experience delivering antenatal and postnatal education. I’m also a mum, so I’ve been where you are now. In this series, I’ve covered all the basics, plus answers to some of the most popular questions that I’ve been asked over the years while working across various maternity units.
I champion maternal mental health and campaign against maternity discrimination, as well as being a communications partner for Child.Org. I’ve been fortunate enough to provide expert advice on BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour, Channel 5 and ITV, and earlier this year published a book with Penguin called The Modern Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond.
