Midwife Eirini Vounatsou: “What should you do? That’s the one question your midwife cannot answer.”

Tinto’s Eirini Vounatsou shares what she’s learnt about birth and motherhood in her nine years as a midwife.

Nelson Mandela said that “education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world,” and it’s so true. Motherhood comes with a lot of opinions, and I see women every day who are confused by all the different information that’s being thrown at them. Unfortunately, sometimes this can really affect a woman and she can end up having a traumatic maternity journey because of it.

“Our job is not to tell women what to do with their bodies. Instead, our job is to give every woman all the information she might need so that she can make the decision that’s best for her.”
