Jo has been qualified as a midwife for 28 years with a wealth of experience embracing all aspects of maternity care spanning across 5 different countries. Core-team labour ward in a busy city hospital, working with refugees in areas of conflict, home-deliveries, and teaching and preparing realistically for what is to come, are but a few of Jo’s areas of expertise. She qualified as a lactation consultant in 2011 and alongside teaching has found this area of care to be her busiest. Her aim is to empower patients so that they feel confident and informed for the journey ahead. She teaches from a base of sound academic knowledge and clinical experience having delivered hundreds of babies. Good preparation is imperative and she offers this in the form of versatile prenatal courses and breastfeeding workshops. Jo also offers private consults both within her clinics and online – extending her breastfeeding support and expertise to many other countries.
Jo is also midwife to all NATO UK patients in Belgium, with clinics at SHAPE- in Mons, southern Belgium and performs postnatal visits in both areas; Mons, central Brussels and the surrounding areas.
