Thando Mpofu ~ Independent Midwife
"A happy baby has shining eyes , it walks open hearted into the world and spreads magic."
Welcome to my Midwifery Practice, Phenomenal Babies. I am an Advanced Midwife who qualified in 2005 as a professional Nurse. I worked in St Mary’s women’s clinic which is now in Springs Parklands Hospital.(Life Health care Group). I had an opportunity to do BCUR-ED ADM in Advanced Midwifery in 2013 at University of Johannesburg. Also worked as a Clinical Training specialist for Midwifery students in Springs parklands Hospital.
My passion to be a Midwife led me to join Independent Midwives and I believe that I can make a huge difference in many women. Some women have experienced psychological trauma during birth and a traumatic birth can have an impact during Post natal period. Mental health and family relationships are affected too. Therefore in my practice I strive to render quality care that promotes optimal psychological outcomes.
I believe that a woman needs to be given an opportunity to progress naturally during labor without Un necessary medical interventions. Pregnant women needs to be supported during Antenatal period, during labor and Postnally too. This makes them to be confident and take control of changes happening in their bodies and results in an amazing and unforgettable experience.
As an expectant mother you need a Compassionate individualized care. I am there to provide that care in a homely environment. Pregnancy is not a disability, nor a reason to feel shy. Let’s together walk the path of your pregnancy as I offer you Respectful Culture Sensitive Care. Midwifery is a closed book, no one knows what’s inside until it is opened I am going to be there all the way with you and together we will go through this pain of labor of love.I believe in empowering Women to take control of their destiny during Pregnancy , labor and delivery. This promotes positive outcomes as each mother strives for the best.
Enjoy the experience of Child birth in the Company of your Beloved ones as I believe companionship during childbirth allays fears and anxieties.
