about us

Midwife & Antenatal Teacher

Stefanie Docherty – Owner and founder of Me, you and baby too.

Stefanie has 16 years experience of working within the NHS as an Adult Nurse, and over 9 years experience in Midwifery. She has worked at Manchester’s leading Hospital, St Mary’s, in various departments from Antenatal Clinic, Labour Ward, Postnatal Ward and as a Community Midwife. Her most recent role has been dedicated to serving women and their families on a Midwife Led Birth Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, where the philosophy is one that recognises the normality of childbirth. To complement her practice and offer more personalised care, Stefanie has also trained in Aromatherapy in Childbirth, become a Hypnobirthing Practitioner, an Examination of the Newborn Practitioner and is an accredited First Aid Trainer.

Stefanie became a Midwife because she felt passionate about families having the best start in life, after all the Midwife is likely to be the first health professional your baby will meet. With good care, families are more likely to be happy and healthier, and happy, healthy families make for a more positive, enriched society. It is common that women and their partners feel scared about birth, that they sometimes worry about decisions they have to make about their birth and that new parents often feel overwhelmed about the sheer responsibility of parenthood. By being able to offer quality antenatal education, a good dose of care, compassion and a sense of humour, Me, you and baby too can alleviate this anxiety and new parents will feel much more positive and prepared for their journey into parenthood.

The aim of creating Me, you and baby too is to give you impartial, evidence based information to empower you and give you the confidence to make the right decisions for you, your birth and your new family. We want you to walk away from our courses feeling excited about your birth! We also want to connect parents along the way to make this journey a more fun and friendly one.

Stefanie is very enthusiastic about supporting her local community and is working in collaboration with Barnados to help women in the Wythenshawe area to make healthy choices in pregnancy.

Me, you and baby too also has the privilege of offering to you some complementary services provided by some wonderful colleagues, whose information can be found in the Services section.
