Caseload Midwifery: A family friendly way of working

Emma-jane Berridge talks about her journey into midwifery and how working as a caseload midwife gave her more time with family. ''As a full-time caseload midwife, however, I dropped my five-year-old to school every morning. I managed my own diary so that I saw my first client around 9.30, I was usually home for kids' teatime at 5.15, I was able to take my 10 year old to swimming three times a week, I put them both to bed every night, and sometimes I got a call in the evening or the early hours and went out to a home assessment and/or birth.''
