Suyai Steinhauer – Independent Midwife – Working with the transformative power of birth. I’m based in Frome and cover Somerset and surrounding areas within a 40-mile radius, though am able to travel further afield in special circumstances. I specialise in home birth, water birth and home birth after caesarean section. I provide a fully personalised, client-centred and holistic service, offering antenatal and postnatal packages as well as full midwifery care from booking to a month after your baby is born. My philosophy of care is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are natural physiological processes, that women have the innate ability to birth their babies, and that birth is almost always a family event rather than a medical one. My aim is to support people so they emerge from the childbirth continuum feeling joyful, strong and empowered and babies are met in the most gentle way possible, whatever the setting.
