Alessandra D'Angelo - Founder
I am a senior midwife in London and a mum to a lovely and playful 2-years old daughter.
I moved to London from Italy in 2011 when I had the opportunity to have an extraordinary experience in a birth centre, supporting low-risk women during natural labour without any pain relief medications and support them from their first appointment in early pregnancy till six weeks after the birth.
I have been working in a variety of maternity settings both antenatally and postnatally in the past 10 years. In 2014 I joined one the world-class maternity unit in Central London where I led the antenatal education and antenatal clinic services, delivering tailor-made care to the patients i was caring for.
I have obtained a Master in Advanced Practice in Midwifery (Kings College London) in 2019, focussing my attention on to evidence-based care, research and normalising birth.
My passion is in supporting women and their families during the joyful journey to parenthood and equip them with all the tools and knowledge they need to grow thriving and happy children.
I am also a first aid instructor, a KGH hypnobirthing teacher as well as on my journey towards becoming a Lactation Consultant.
The Birth and Beyond provides midwife-led antenatal and postnatal education aiming to equip couples with everything they need for a wonderful, empowered parenthood experience.
Our mission is to provide evidence-based education and leave parents-to-be confident and well informed for the arrival of their child.
The Birth and Beyond also aims to guide breastfeeding mums who needs support in the first few weeks providing both face-to-face and telephone consultation with an experienced midwife or a breastfeeding advisor.
Services for you!
Antenatal & Postnatal classes
Antenatal and Postnatal education classes for both first or second time mums.
These classes can be both face-to-face with a maximum of 4 couples where you have the opportunity to learn about birth, baby care, dealing with emergencies, breastfeeding and ask any question you may have. You could also choose to do them over 1 full day or on skype if you happen to be out of London and do not fancy travelling.
This is an opportunity to have both a face-to-face or a telephone conversation with an experienced midwife or a breastfeeding advisor.
If you are having difficulties breastfeeding or you do not feel confident enough in the first few weeks, an experienced midwife or breastfeeding advisor can support you through this difficult time.
You have access to up-to-date and evidence-based resources about pregnancy, childbirth and post-natal period.
