Penelope Watson-Midwife

Penny Watson is a Registered midwife and became an endorsed midwife in private practice in 2016 . She has joined the clinic and Bub & Bloom team here in Mount Eliza in 2020 helping couples during the covid-19 pandemic to cope with lack of available care.

Penny has been a midwife for 24 years and has worked extensively with women in one on one care with the ‘ Know Your Midwife’  program at Box Hill Hospital.

This further inspired her to provide a much needed individualized midwifery care as a private midwife on the Mornington Peninsula. She has worked closely with the obstetricians on the mornington peninsula , including providing care as a practice midwife with Jolyon Ford, who is presently head of obstetrics at Peninsula Health – Frankston Hospital.

Penny provides private midwifery care or works collaboratively with these obstetricians and GP obstetricians. Safety and professionalism is paramount in her care for families. 

Her belief is that pregnancy should be treated as a normal and natural experience. With the right care, education and professional support, the journey toward a fulfilling pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience can be achieved. This journey is a shared one with your partner and your midwife, Penny, who will be there with you every step of the way.
