Worth far more than we paid

“Cost seems an obstacle for a lot of people when it comes to choosing private midwifery care. So many people have told me they would have liked to have it but couldn’t afford it, for me it is a question of priority. If you see birth as a few miserable hours that you just have to get through, then private midwifery fees will seem like a lot. But if you see pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks of life as a period which deeply affects both mother and baby for the rest of their shared and separate lives, then it just seems like a logical investment, worth far more than we paid for.”
