Angela Horler, RM
Independent midwife, antenatal teacher 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 have various additional qualifications including a diploma in antenatal education (NCT), baby massage, acupuncture for labour, tongue tie division and I hold the pediatric new born examination qualification. In 2017 I will be undertaking training for lactation consultancy.
I am a member of IMUK, AIMS and the RCN.
