Leanne Hogan – LDR Manager

I’m Leanne Hogan, a UK trained midwife with 14 years clinical experience, 11 years from one of the largest Maternity Hospitals in Europe. I have worked in all areas of Maternity from high risk obstetric led to low risk Midwifery led units. I am passionate about women centred care. I feel maternity care should be tailored to meet the individual needs of women and should always adapt a holistic approach. Childbirth is such an important time in a woman’s life and should be treasured. My aim is to ensure women have a positive and empowered experience with exceptional standard of clinical and emotional care.
I am a mother of 3 and appreciate the importance of this special time in a woman’s life. The physical and emotional changes a women experiences during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period are spectacular. We are here at King’s to support and guide women and their families through this journey from start to finish.

I’m a Registered Nurse Midwife and have dedicated myself to the service of birthing women and the family. I derive profound joy from guiding natural processes and supporting women in whatever type of birthing experience they want. No two Moms, no two babies and no two births are the same, so it is important to me to individualize care to each mom. I feel honoured to share in the miracle of bringing babies into this world by supporting my moms and giving them safe and natural options for their birth.
