Linda Wilson | Midwife DirectorRegistered Midwife (Endorsed), Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
I migrated to Australia from the UK in 2006 and began practicing at a large teaching hospital in Perth and after gaining a few years experience caring for women with high-risk pregnancies and birth, I moved to a smaller hospital to enable me to care for women deemed predominantly low risk ‘normal’ pregnancy and birth. During this time, I undertook further training to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. This enabled me to support breastfeeding women in a specialist role. I joined the Community Midwifery Program (CMP) in 2011, caring for women birthing at home, hospital and in the birthing centre. This was a challenging but enormously rewarding role. In 2015 I set up in private practice providing pregnancy and postnatal care and lactation consultations. During this time, I recognised the need for a midwifery clinic that offers bulk billed care to women and advocates for and supports their choices during pregnancy, birth and beyond. Myself and Gaynor have worked together for several years and share the same passion and vision for women centred maternity care services. We are very excited to launch this new centre and look forward to meeting new families embarking on their pregnancy journey.
I trained as a midwife in the UK and worked autonomously providing midwifery led care to women in both a hospital and community setting. I migrated to Perth in 2008 and worked as a Clinical Midwife in a public/private hospital and then as a case loading midwife for the Community Midwifery Program (CMP). This role enabled me to provide midwifery led care throughout the antenatal, intapartum (birth) and postnatal period for many women. Being recognised as the clinical lead in low risk midwifery led care, I was appointed as the Clinical Midwifery Specialist for the CMP where I was instrumental in providing clinical leadership, implementing policy compliance and developing best practice guidelines ensuring gold standard midwifery led care. In order to progress my passion, myself and my co-director have established Perth Pregnancy Centre with a vision that all pregnant women should have access to choice, control and gold standard continuity of midwifery care. PPC is a centre where any pregnant woman can come to experience safe, evidence based midwifery care with knowledgeable, competent and confident midwives, and of course no wait times and bulk bulling is a huge bonus. I look forward to providing this new, unique, community-based service and to supporting newly pregnant mums throughout their pregnancy and early parenting journey.
