Nicky and Ariadna


Ariadna gave a realisitic and flexible account of pregnancy, labour and parenthood, and the emphasis was on your power to become well informed and make your own choices about the whole process.

Nicola and Tom

Ariadna and Nicky are both practising midwives, between them they have 38 years of experience and 6 children!

Ariadna has over 11 years of experience as a practising midwife working in both hospital and community. She has lots of experience of helping women give birth at home and since the birth of her own children, she combines her work as a NHS midwife with running group antenatal classes.

Nicky has been a midwife for 27 years. She has worked in both the hospital and community settings and has a lot of homebirth experience. She is also a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) which is the Gold standard qualification for supporting breastfeeding mums and babies.

We are passionate about pregnancy and birth and feel grateful to be part of this process as a midwife. Becoming a parent is a beautiful experience but it can also be daunting at times. Hence, we aim not only to prepare you for labour and the birth but also to offer you support on those early weeks whenever needed.

Our desire is to offer unbiased evidenced based information enabling you to confidently make choices and decisions about the sort of birth you want and early days with your baby. Equally, we will be there if you need extra support for those early days and/or guidance on breastfeeding.

All classes are held in a private room at The Lordship Pub, 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, which it is easily accessible from Nunhead, Peckham, Forest Hill.

 We really look forward to hearing fom you!
