About me

I’m a qualified midwife with over 12 years of experience.
I have a 3 year old who as you can see enjoyed sitting still for the photoshoot! And I’ve recently had my second baby, Frankie.

Hey, I’m Marie Louise, best known as The Modern Midwife online

I’m an experienced midwife of more than 12 years and mum of two. I am dedicated to supporting parents throughout their journey with my online courses and books, published by Penguin. I aim to simplify  clinical jargon and break down scientific data into a more digestible, friendly way. I like to use relatable analogies to make pregnancy and parenthood less daunting.  With the right support, things can become clearer and easier. It’s crucial that you are informed – that’s what I am here for!


The Modern Midwife works as a clinical communications specialist supporting global brands. Using a versatile approach she provides brands with modern and relatable communications and advertisement. This creates greater brand trust, credibility and enhanced consumer experience.

Her expertise as a midwife in invaluable, but her knowledge on how to approach parents and parents to be is outstanding. She understands people and how to connect with them, she is full of insightful knowledge and she has the capacity to explain the most complex topics in an easy and friendly way. I recommend Marie as a Midwife, a consultant, a brand expert and as a person in general.
