It is very frequent within the cases of fear, being a mother, that motherhood is seen as a task that require many skills and competences at the same time without leaving time to train.
Mrs Mavis Addo Pappoe has been there for my whole family. She has been very supportive and caring in both Pre natal post natal and early child development.
She provided a practical help with feeding, winding, nappy change and settling all my three children any time I contact her.
I was concerned about my daughter's oral intake and a slow weight gained. Health visitor adviced to continue breast feeding which I did but nothing improved. I was so stressed, I was very frustrated. I called Mavis regarding my daughter's slow weight gain. Mavis adviced to call the health visitor and asked for referral for paedietician which I did. My daughter was referred and was seen. Nutrition supplements was prescribed. Many occasions I have seeked help with baby care. Mavis have always been there to advice and to offer help when needed.
Mavis have a good communication skills, good listener. advicer,teacher, caring, supportive, approachable and compassionate. She delivers high standard of care, committed and very professional.
I highly recommend Mavis care sevices

I first met Mavis shortly after I found out I was pregnant with my first baby.


My prenatal and postnatal care was wonderful and allowed for discussion around my needs and wants with every test, scan, and examination. This was different from the stories we heard from the experience of other pregnant women in our neighbourhood. I had the support of Mavis for our first and second born, and I would choose her as my midwifery for my future children.

When I met Mavis as a first-time mother, my knowledge about pregnancy and looking after a new-born baby was limited. Throughout the entire pregnancy I felt I had an advocate in my corner and any issue we had my husband will ask if I have checked with Mavis the midwife.

Mavis was incredible, and she far exceeded our expectations when it came to her care, knowledge, ability, professionalism, experience, and most impactfully her genuine desire to help and be of service. She guided us through every decision in my pregnancy and birth, supported our decisions, and intentionally built a relationship with us along the way which was so valuable when it came to time for delivery. Her help gave me courage and calmness during the last few days to my delivery.

My delivery process involved getting an epidural and eventually a Caesarean section delivery, she was there with the consultants to talked me through the options which helped me feel like I was making the best decisions possible for myself and my baby.

After giving birth, she was there to help me deal with breastfeeding, ensuring that we were able to get my daughter’s tongue-tie diagnosed and fixed. Even after I was no longer officially in her care, Mavis often checked in on me, which was especially helpful as I worked my way through the challenges of caring for the newly born.

She also explained the process after we were discharged from the hospital. She provided me with advice on how to care for myself so my physical and mental health would not deteriorate. She listened to my husband’s concerns and encouraged us. She directed us to local children centres and family services. Her eye for health and safety for babies and children is next to none, she taught my husband and I to be constantly alert to health and safety risks. I would always recommend her service as a midwife.

I and my husband have always had a really wonderful and great support from Mavis and anytime we think about the invaluable support we have been receiving from Mavis it marvels us. We are a parent of two girls and finding the right support was gifted to us in the person of Mavis. She has been so caring, compassionate and relentless in providing support during the period of pregnancy, birth and after birth. She aided us prepare for what is really needed for a new born at every single step of the way. The kind of love and support we received compelled us to choose the place she work when I was pregnant with my second child and was never disappointed. She was the one to notice jaundice in my second child and supported us to cope mentally while the child undergo treatment. She has been an amazing support and appreciate her for all her caring and humble nature. We feel more than comfortable to communicate to her anything and even the trivial things. She is very professional, caring, passionate and knowledgeable and there is no doubt of going back to London from Doncaster should I ever have more children.

I first met Mavis Addo-Pappoe shortly after I had my first baby.
I had gone through a difficult pregnancy with several complications. And so it was a particularly challenging time.
As a first time mother, my knowledge about pregnancy and looking after a new born baby was limited.
Mavis helped me to gain confidence in caring for my baby and showed me how to make the necessary adjustments in my life. For example I had no idea how to perform certain tasks such as giving baby a bath. Breastfeeding was also quite difficult initially. Mavis walked me through these as well as countless others day to day tasks. As a direct result of her support, I we were able to establish and adhere to a routine.

She provided me with advice on how to care for myself physically and mentally. She listened to my concerns and encouraged me. She was very resourceful. For example, she provided me with details of my local children and family services. Through which I was able to access several mother and baby classes.

Mavis was caring and compassionate. She helped me to get my confidence back at a time when I sometimes felt overwhelmed. For example, there was a time when I dreaded going out simply because I thought I would not be able to breastfeed my baby. She helped me explore various options and after going out a few times, It was no longer an issue. I now have valuable life long skills because of the help and support I received from Mavis. Her service was exceptional.
