Rebecca Tieken

I offer full midwifery services and various complementary services. I am based in Ealing and will travel up to 1 hour from W5. I cover areas in Central London, North Surrey and West Berkshire.

Pregnancy and birth have always amazed me. However, it wasn’t until a trip to Ethiopia where I visited the Hamlin Fistula Centre and the Hamlin College of Midwives in Addis Ababa, that I saw first–hand the importance of good antenatal care. From then on, my passion for midwifery was established and I graduated with a First Class Honours Midwifery degree.

I attended The Farm Midwifery Centre in Tennessee and completed their advanced midwifery workshop. It was an amazing experience to meet with some truly inspirational midwives such as Ina May Gaskin and Pamela Hunt. Whilst there, my passion for advocating holistic and woman-centred care was strengthened.

Up to now, I’ve worked in a busy West London hospital in all settings and therefore have experience of a broad range of pregnancies and births. Outside of the NHS, I have participated in a number of home births with other independent midwives.

I am UNICEF trained in breastfeeding support, certified in pregnancy reflexology and watsu (water shiatsu) therapy, and offer rebozo. And as a keen yoga enthusiast, I am in the process of becoming certified as a pregnancy yoga teacher.

I am trilingual in English, Spanish and Dutch.

Rebecca spent an unhurried afternoon supporting me with breastfeeding and enabled me to become confident within myself. She is gentle and caring and I always felt like I could call on her when I needed.
