Angela Horler, RM
Independent midwife, breastfeeding specialist and mother.
For as long as I can remember, pregnant women and pregnancy have fascinated me and during my first pregnancy it was clear that midwifery was where my heart was; however, it was not until the birth of my third child that I could no longer avoid my vocation to be ‘with woman’.
During my midwifery training, I had the privilege of attending midwifery workshops at ‘The Farm’, home of Ina May Gaskin and ‘Spiritual Midwifery’, which was – and still is – my inspiration, keeping strong my deep belief in women’s ability to birth their babies. Upon qualifying in 2007, I chose to work outside of the NHS so that I could practice holistic, one-to-one midwifery care.
I have 3 energetic and loving older children, a dog, two cats, and (most importantly) a wonderful and supportive husband who is as passionate about midwifery as I am! We live in Shepperton, Middlesex.
I am a qualified breastfeeding specialist and also have various additional qualifications including diploma in antenatal education (NCT), baby massage, acupuncture for labour, tongue tie division and am qualified to undertake the peadiatric new born examination.
I am a member of AIMS and the RCN.
