About me



 

As a British trained registered nurse and certified midwife, I left the UK and its green pastures, and spread my wings, towards a new horizon. After a brief spell in North Africa, where I gained experience working as a midwife in an ex-pat community for a few years, I arrived in Switzerland, ready to take on a new challenge.

There were very few English speakers in the canton du Valais at that time, so, I picked up French whilst working in the regional hospital in Sion. I obtained my 'equivalence' (recognition of my British training) a couple of years later, and was then free to work anywhere in Switzerland.

After a couple of years in Sion, I moved to Nyon, in the canton de Vaud, where I worked as a hospital midwife for three years. I then moved to Geneva and worked as a teacher of Obstetrics for the student nurses at "Le Bon Secours", a nursing school.

I had met my husband to be within three months of arriving in Switzerland. With the birth of our first daughter, then our son,
and our second daughter, I took a break from my role as a midwife and enjoyed raising our young family. As they grew up
and went to school, I re-integrated the workforce as an independent midwife.

As well as expanding my practice in the Nyon area, I continue to develop my skills through regular training in childbirth preparation. I qualified as a Lactation Consultant in 2003, and, have, more recently, completed further training in relaxation techniques, with a particular focus on the positive effects of deep relaxation to alleviate discomfort during childbirth.
