About Us

Want to know what our customers think - see our reviews

Birth Supplies works closely with Midwives, Doulas and Antenatal Teachers to bring together a range of products that are both practical and inexpensive. We can supply everything you need for a water birth, home birth or hospital delivery. We can help you look at your options and offer a listening ear with any queries.

We have a trained Doula, a trained midwife and a trained nurse working in our offices to offer you the best service we possibly can. Everyone in the office is also a parent, so we have experience from that side of the fence as well!

Midwives and Health Professionals or a home birth group?

Would you like to promote your group on our site?

We support a number of home birth groups locally and are always happy to do what we can to advertise and support anything connected to home birth. If you would like us to mention your group please send us details via the contact us page, or call us on 01526 344 266. We are not a retail store but you are welcome to collect your order - just contact us first to arrange it.

Meet the Team

Pamela - Customer Services, Trade, Product Procurement & Development - Trained Doula
A Mother of two, Pam is where it all started. Missing out on a home birth herself she was determined to help others achieve what they wanted for their birth. If you call us you will most likely get through to Pamela. She can turn her hand to anything and deals with our NHS customers, Private midwives & Doulas as well as filling in wherever she is needed! She trained as a Doula but it soon became clear that birth supplies would take up her time - and she has been asked anything and everything relating to birth! Pamela has attended a number of births both at home and in hospital, so she has seen and heard from both sides of the birth equation!

Bev - Hires & Administration - Trained Nurse & Midwife.
Bev works in the office with Pamela and is usually either sat at her desk ensuring the smooth running of our Hire department, or popping into the warehouse to check on hire stock. She handles general admin & is often on the phone dealing with the many queries we get daily about our birth pools. It's a known fact that as soon as she gets up from her desk the phone starts ringing! She is Mum to 2 girls and previously spent a number of years working in the both the NHS & private sector first as a nurse, and later as a midwife. Bev also trained as a massage therapist and has an interest in Complementary Therapies. She also keeps a close eye on Quality management, and it is thanks to Bev and Pam that we are proud holders of ISO 9001 : 2015 status.

Erin - Accounts
Erin has been working alongside us for a while and now deals with all the in-house accounts. She is very thorough and precise with great attention to detail...which makes her perfect for the job.  

Darren - Warehouse Manager
Darren manages our warehouse team. We have a very good reputation for speedy dispatch and Darren works hard with his team to ensure all goods leave the warehouse accurately and in a timely manner. He also arranges all our hire dispatch / returns, which keeps him busy. Any problems with couriers or parcels then Darren is your man.

Sarah - Administration & Accounts
Sarah is the newest member of our team. She works in the office alongside Pam & Bev. Although she hasn't been with us long, Sarah has settled in really quickly and will turn her hand to anything that is asked of her. A Mum of two, life is busy for Sarah and she spends most evenings and weekends playing mum's taxi ferrying her children around the county or watching her daughter playing football. In her spare time she runs her own online craft business. Sarah is also proud mum to four chickens and the whole office enjoys the occasional freshly-laid egg!

Karen - Hires
Karen handles all our hires, ensuring everything leaves us in excellent condition. This means she spends a great deal of time in our clean room singing along to the radio! Her attention to detail ensures that all our hire equipment is meticulously clean - exactly what you want in a birth pool! 

Wes - Warehouse
Wes works alongside Darren in the warehouse. A relatively new member to our team he is kept busy with all the pick, pack & dispatch for our sales and hires. Wes is also learning the administration for goods in & dispatch as well as managing inventory. We certainly keep him busy!

Sam manages our social media and online presence. We keep her busy, yet we are always amazed by how much she achieves in a day.

Helen - Hires
Helen works alongside Karen ensuring all our hries are expertly cleaned when they arrive back with us. Her & Karen spend a lot of time together in an enclosed space, so it's good to know that they are friends and like each other's company! 

That’s the team so far. Not huge by any stretch of the imagination, but we all work well together, and offer a wide range of complementary skills.
