Undisturbed Birthing is the concept by which Oxford based independent private midwife Lou Pouget practices. Lou offers a range of private midwife services to expectant mothers in Oxford and Gloucestershire. While childbirth can never truly be painless, Lou can teach you techniques that will allow you to focus on the amazing experience and pleasure that childbirth can bring.

Independent Midwife Oxford

Lou has been a midwife in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire for over 15 years and is now able to offer you all her experience as an independent midwife, thereby providing you with a personal service that the NHS is unable to offer. Lou will be your 'named' midwife and be able to give you continuity of care from first meeting to post birth check-ups. You will be able to contact her 24hrs a day should you need to.

Alongside Frances Barnsley, who's delivered many babies in the Chipping Norton area, Lou has been working hard in Burma for the charity Helping the Burmese Delta to increase awareness/educate traditional birth attendants. Having delivered over 1000 babies, many people will know Lou who has delivered several generations in the Oxford area!

Lou also offers a 'night midwife' service! If you feel you need some rest and recuperation would it be of help to have a qualified midwife/lactation expert on hand so you can maybe settle into some sort of vague routine?!? Do ring for more information.
