Epilepsy is a neurological condition and affects about 1 in every 100 people so is surprisingly common yet is also poorly understood, partly because there are around 40 different types. People with epilepsy are often discriminated against due to lack of information and women in particular can be especially vulnerable when trying to conceive and then on-going through their pregnancy.

Kim Morley is a midwife specialising in providing care to women with epilepsy. Based in Hampshire, she runs a unique clinic alongside her obstetric colleagues, personalising care for this often forgotten group of women. Kim provides holistic midwifery care to her caseload, many of whom receive continuity of care from her from the preconception years to motherhood.
