Tummy2Mummy has been a fantastic service to me during my pregnancy; I have had both gender and reassurance scans there and found the atmosphere totally relaxing and enjoyable. Both Liz and Donna genuinely care about their clients, I have rang on numerous occasions with questions and queries that my own midwife and doctor couldn’t give me answers for and they have always been there to answer them and never made me feel silly for worrying. It is almost like having a private midwife!
Not only do you get peace of mind knowing that there is someone there on the end of the phone to answer your worries, the value for money is amazing, especially considering the amount you would spend for a single scan in a private hospital such as Bupa, which is in excess of £100!
The main thing that I loved about Tummy2Mummy is that you are never rushed. They take time to make you feel comfortable and relaxed; especially in the scanning room (which has the latest scanning equipment) where you can bring in as many people as you wish to share your experience of seeing your baby move on screen.
I have already recommended this service to lots of friends who have also found the experience as enjoyable as I have. My baby is due any time now but don’t know how I would have got through my pregnancy without them.
Thank you Liz and Donna!
Well what can we say , Liz and Donna are by far the best and most caring midwifes weve had the pleasure of meeting.
Both of the ladies have provided us with countless advice and beautiful scan images that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
We met them both early in our pregnancy and have used there brilliant services all the way up to the birth of our precious son.
thanks Liz and Donna for all you help

Karl and Julie Orton would like to share their wonderful news of the safe arrival of Eva Tiiu Orton on the 8-10-10,weighing 8lbs 14ozs.
A big thankyou to Liz and Donna for all their wonerful support throughout my pregnancy.
Donna and Liz have been a fantastic support to me throughout both my pregnancies. For me, attending tummy2mummy was so reassuring as they had time to sit and talk with you. I never felt that any question was too silly to ask and didn’t feel rushed through my appointment. They are both very experienced and knowledgable and provided practical and helpful insights. This was really important to me as I wanted to be prepared so I could make informed choices throughout my pregnancy and during labour. I also felt that getting a second opinion and receiving impartial advice was really important and Donna and Liz are able to provide this alternative option.
I can’t thank them enough for helping me through this exciting time in my family’s life.
Hi Donna and Liz
Thank you for all your help when I was in my mummy’s tummy and then when I came into this big wide world
Lots of love Reebie and Mummy (Tracey)
We contacted Liz and Donna after suffering some complications in the middle of my pregnancy. Although my community midwife was fantastic she couldnt offer the service that we received from Tummy to Mummy. Liz was brilliant and put us together a package of extra antenatal care and reassurance scans. The scans in particular were fantastic and were just what I needed to reassure me that all was ok with baby. Our 2 year daughter was more than welcome at these appointments and she particularly enjoyed seeing her baby brother on the big screen. Every time with we visited the community midwife after seeing Liz she would ask if it was the lady with the lollies, and was quite disappointed when it wasnt!
Our whole package of care from Tummy to Mummy was brilliant from start to finish and I would recommend them to everybody! Liz treated us like friends from the very beginning and I felt like I could discuss anything with her via phone, text or email without feeling embarrased or that I was bothering her. Thank You for everything! Benjamin James arrived on the 16th December weighing 7lb 14oz and the whole birth experience this time around was amazing. We are enjoying being a family of 4 and Maya (at the minute) is loving being a big sister.
Love Sarah, James and Maya Crowhurst
Donna & Liz were my midwifes with my first pregnancy. They were so good to me. So to my disappointment, when I got pregnant again they had left my doctors practise.
I soon found out that they had gone private. So I popped in to make an appointment, has it happened I had a scan there & then.
No waiting in a sparse, cold feeling hospital room to possibly be told bad news, my experiences of that have stopped with me.
Even though Donna & Liz can’t wave a magic wand & make everything ok. Walking walking into a warm, calm, caring, professional atmosphere, gave me an instant calmness.
The attention I received was excellent, & I have been back for 2 more reassurance scans since.
Knowing I could just ring Donna & Liz, & say that I’m panicking & get a scan instantly has helped me enormously.
At 19 weeks I went for a gender scan. What a wonderful experience this was. Not just a 5 minute or less scan, we were theirs an hour, the care & attention Donna & Liz gave me was outstanding.
I would recommend anyone having their first baby or more to use their very special & very reasonable costing professional services.
The reward for giving their experience professional care is a unique, successful business.
I wish them a fantastic future, for which they deserve

I started going to aqua natal when I was pregnant with my first baby and would recommend it to anyone who is expecting. It’s not only superb exercise during pregnancy with the water being a massive help to take the weight of baby off for a while but it’s also a lovely way to meet new friends who are expecting too! I’m now 32 weeks pregnant with my second and was so excited about going back to aqua natal I started again about a week after I found out I was expecting. Don’t worry about going on your own if you don’t know anybody either because everyone is so welcoming and friendly and Donna makes sure everyone’s involved. We have a session at the end where we have an antenatal subjects discussion, Donna the midwife who runs the group is absolutely brilliant, she’s so welcoming and always has time to answer any questions or talk to you about any worries you may have.
I could write an essay praising the group! Xx
P.s I’m suffering from quite bad SPD during this pregnancy and the aqua natal is a big help, you can do as little or as much of the excercises as you feel comfortable and it really helps relieves any other aches and pains you may be experiencing…
Dear Donna & Liz

We’ve seen so much, been through such a lot, but there’s simply no one else on earth like these two remarkable midwives, you feel more like their best friend than just a client.
These two ladies are truly remarkable; they will make you feel like you have been friends forever.
Donna & Liz will always have a warm and friendly welcome for anyone that comes through there door.
Lots of love Gemma and Baby Lucy
We would both like to thank you so much for your support and care during our pregnancy and beyond.
From the very first time that we turned up on your door step needing some advice and reassurance you guys have been there. We first started seeing you when we reached 20 weeks, but I would recommend to every expectant mother that you ladies have what it takes to make any pregnancy the most special and remarkable experience that a pregnancy should be from the first minute you find out your going to be new parents. We not only got support and guidance but we also gained 2 amazing friends that we always call upon for a chat and cup of tea. We have recommended you to so many of our friends. As every expectant mother needs to experience what you ladies have to offer, as your service is second to none and makes pregnancy an experience to remember, and also leaves mummy and daddy feeling excited and confident that they have you ladies only a call away.
Our Baby Boy, Jack was born on the 4th November 2010, weighing 7lb 15oz. Born at home at 14:45. He is now almost 4 months old. The time just goes so quickly.
If we choose to have a brother or sister for Baby Jack in the future, we will be calling upon Liz and Donna to again make our experience unforgettable.
Love and Best Wishes
Carlie, Danny and Baby Jack Broomfield
Hi Donna and Liz,
Just to let you know that we now have a very lovely daughter, Caitlin Lily born 13th March weighing in at 7lb 1 oz.
We would just like to say a very big thank you to both yourselves and Anthony for everything you did for us during the scans. Even if the weather was against us, you were always welcoming and did everything you could to get us the best pictures of our little one!
Please find attached two photos. The first taken very shortly after the birth, the second, taken a few weeks later. She is the spitting image of the 4D scan, thank you!!
Sarah, Tim and Caitlin Hargraves
After all my worrying I can’t believe how perfect Mia is.
Thank you so much for my reassurance, you are very nice people and are doing a great job.

Donna and Liz, well what can I say. With their amazing experience as midwives and their commitment to everyone of their clients, I couldn’t have asked to be in better hands.
I had a scan at Tummy 2 Mummy when I was just 6 weeks pregnant as I had experienced a miscarriage in a previous pregnancy. I wanted reassurance that there was a heartbeat. Much to my disbelief Donna and Liz didn’t just find one heartbeat but three (wow triplets)
They quickly made arrangements for me to see the appropriate specialists at the hospital and were extremely calming.
Although at a later stage the triplets became just twins Donna and Liz were always on hand to give me support and advice every step of the way.
I now have gorgeous twins as well as my two older children (one of which was delivered at home by Donna).
Liz and Donna still keep in contact with me and visit to see all the kids.
I would recommend Tummy2Mummy to anyone in pregnancy who wants anything from a reassurance scan up to a homebirth.
Thank you Donna and Liz xx Becky, Will, baby Emily and Lewis xx
I first joined aquanatal when I was approx 17 weeks pregnant right through to being full term. I can not recommend it highly enough! It wasn’t just an opportunity to get some exercise whilst pregnant, that I knew was safe to do during pregnancy, but also a chance to meet other mums to be (many of whom I am still firm friends with).
At the end of each session Donna runs a parentcraft session and you also get the opportunity to ask the instructor, Donna, who is also a qualified midwife, questions regarding your pregnancy. I found the whole experience invaluable! A chance to meet other people & share stories, ask Donna questions, whilst getting some exercise! Thank you so much Donna for all your help & advice!
We just wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely welcome and service I received from yourselves. I have the pleasure to announce the safe arrival of my beautiful daughter who was born on the 8th Feb. 2010 weighing 7lbs 3 1/2oz called Alisa. After having the sweep done last Thurs, my waters broke on sat morning, so was admitted in and had to be induced on sun night as i had no contractions. After a few hours of labour i gave birth to Alisa at 00:17am on mon morning. I am extremely grateful and me and Pete would like to say a big thank you as she probably still wouldn’t be here yet.
Many thanks again and we would highly recommend your service to anyone
Love Jo and Pete xx
We can’t thank you enough for such a perfect end to our pregnancy. The birth was the best yet, baby is beautiful and our family now feels complete. Baby Kalonice is our 5th baby and Donna and Liz have been there for us throughout and will always be part of our lives
Thank you both so much
Lots of love

Dear liz & donna Thank you so much for all of your help and advice both throughout my pregnancy and beyond. Polly is nearly 4 months old and I know that I can still call upon you for advice. The service you provide at tummy2mummy is second to none! So professional and yet relaxed and friendly too. I would recommend you again and again, and now class you both as friends, who I will always keep in touch with. Look forward to more scans and cups of tea with baby number two one day! Lots of loveLeanne, Dan & Polly xxx
I cannot praise this group enough, not only did we get to do exercise to keep ourselves fit, we met others mums and have a great social network. Donna the midwife who runs the class supports you with a class at the end where we learn relaxation and chat about our pregnancies and what/not to do. Donna arranges group activities with tummy2mummy that also were invaluable. The facebook page was and is brill to keep in touch, meet all the new babies. I love the postnatal group that Donna arranged and have met life long friends. Everyone should do Donnas Aqua classes Sarah xxx
We are bit biased but can only say that mum and Liz were the best they made us feel safe and confident during my pregnancies, births and postnatal period with Zayleigh and Keavy and would definatly recommend them to anyone (would dare not say anything else! Only joking, could not have done it without them) xxx Vicki and Shorty xxx
I attended tummy 2mummy for antenatal support and scans during my pregnancy and was given such a warm welcome from Liz and Donna. The scan experience was relaxed and the atmosphere was that of caring and encouragment as Liz and Donna explained everything to myself and my family. Actualy I felt like the only woman having a baby. My whole experience was very special as is my baby daughter Elouise. Thank you Liz and Donna, I would reccomend tummy2mummy to any one.
To Liz and Donna
Thank you so much for all your help and support during my pregnancy.
I am very grateful that you were able to speed up my labour and your tips on easing labour pains worked wonders.
Theo is now 5 weeks old and is wonderful. We are loving parenthood
Thank you with best wishes

Hi Donna and Liz. Just wanted to let you know that Marcus Antony Lee arrived last night – 11 days early and on my birthday!! Had an amazing home birth – so quick I needed no pain relief at all (didn’t get a drop of water in the birth pool!). He was born at 10.45pm and weighed 6lb 14oz. Frankie slept through the whole thing and was so excited to meet her new brother when she woke up this morning. So far she thinks he’s great!
Thanks for all your support over the last nine months. I’ve really enjoyed the aqua classes and we were really grateful for all your guidance and advice on the home birth. It was such a positive experience, a million miles away from the hospital birth, we’re definitely converts!
Thanks again and hope to see you at some point with our new arrival
Lindsey and Antony
