About me

I’m a qualified midwife with over 10 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 myself. I have dedicated my life so far to supporting parents throughout their journey through my online courses and books, published by Penguin. I always look to simplify things and my hobby is translating clinical jargon and breaking down scientific data in an easily digestible, friendly way. Using analogies most of us can relate to and understand. Pregnancy and parenthood can be daughting and scary but with the right support things do become clearer and get easier. Ensuring you are able to make informed decisions is crucial – that’s what I am here for!

Her expertise as a midwife in invaluable, but her knowledge on how to approach parents and parents to be is outstanding.
