This is your baby, this is your body, 

This is your birth

Welcome to Tén ‘n Tén Birthing. I am Lilo Mthembu, an Independent Midwife practising in Gauteng, South Africa.

Midwives consider birth a natural event in women’s lives. Midwifery is based on the belief that childbirth is (and should be), a natural, healthy process and that most women are fully capable of giving birth. Midwives see pregnancy as part of the full spectrum of life’s experiences, and they believe women have the right to a fulfilling, as well as a safe, childbirth experience.

Preparing you for the arrival of your baby and ensuring a safe and happy delivery is my passion. I look forward to meeting you.
