Imma Sarries Zgonc is an independent midwife, who offers a complete range of services to do with childbirth, including: the support and monitoring of pregnancy, preparation for childbirth, home-birth assistance, labour care (for women who wish to give birth in hospital), support during the postpartum period, breastfeeding support group, shiatsu for motherhood, and external version for breech presentation with non-invasive methods. Her principal goal is to work alongside women and their partners to ensure a safe and positive childbirth experience, whilst respecting their individual wishes and recognising their values and beliefs. This involves understanding thoroughly pregnancy, childbirth and pospartum physiology. She takes into account the physical, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of birth, knowing that midwifery care can determine the long-term physical outcomes and emotional integrity of women and their families. She believes it is essential to promote the empowerment of women, to protect and care for the welfare of mother and baby; maximising the mother's safety, while increasing her confidence in the physiology and instinctive behaviour, to minimise unnecessary interventions. Imma has studied and worked in both Spain and the UK, and speaks fluent Catalan, Spanish and English, as well as German and French. For more health services in Barcelona click here.
I have the impression that my midwife, Imma, carried out the functions of oh so many different roles which I needed at that time: she was my sister, mother, friend, and all the while she was such an amazing professional caregiver;

I consider your presence during the birth of my daughter, and more generally within my life, as a real blessing. Thank you.

Having Imma as a midwife has been a once-in-a-lifetime gift. She is great at her job! I was able to give birth to my son just as I had dreamed of, in the company of my family.

When Imma was at my side, I completely relaxed. Her discreet but constant presence, her hands, always placed in just the right place to relieve the intensity of the contraction, her respect when monitoring my vital signs and listening to my little one, her intuition ... she knew what I was about to say so many times, so I didn't need to waste my breath... allowing me to concentrate, to feel the contractions and feel how my little girl was coming down inside me. Imma was the best help and company I could have asked for.
