Ester Naudé ~ Independent Midwife

“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birth for herself and her baby .” 

I am a qualified Registered Nurse and Midwife and have been practicing for 7 years.

I studied nursing (B.Cur) at Potchestroom University for 5 years, with practical experience throughout this period. Thereafter I completed my community service year and spent 3 years working in the Labour ward and Post natal ward in the Government hospital.  In the labour ward I would deliver up to 3-4 babies a day, with a high percentage being complicated and high risk cases, as Klerksdorp Hospital was a district referral hospital. In 2014 I moved to Johannesburg and started working at Genesis Clinic.  For me this was a dream come true to be able to learn how to assist with water-birth and in a more natural and gentle way. I received an Excellence Award for Nurses from Discovery Health. Furthermore I received recognition from Genesis Clinic for delivering the most babies in the in-house birthing program for 2014. In 2015  I started working with Henny de Beer from Growth Spurt as an private midwife . Gaining even more knowledge and experience from this well experienced and renowned midwife. I managed and run her practise up and till November 2016. In November 2016  I started my own private practice. In 2018 September I will graduate to receive my Diploma in Advance Midwifery from the University of Johannesburg, gaining more expierence and knowledge into assisting with complicated births.

I believe in the building of a trusting relationship in the antenatal period which will be reflected in the women’s positive birth outcomes. I am passionate about natural labour and birth and facilitate the process of your body’s natural proses of giving birth. Birthing is a journey of self discovery and self belief and every birth is unique and amazing.  A huge part of my continued learning comes from birthing women and the experiences and stories they bring with them. Services include VBAC births, (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean).
