Meet Sapphire team

Merri Dodds

I’m a midwife committed to being calm and kind. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your families and supporting you on the journey through pregnancy and birth to parenthood, whether it is your 1st baby or your 10th!

Outside of work I’m interested in charity work, teaching sexual health in schools, visual art, poetry, live music and travelling.

Charis Williams

I love being a midwife because I get to see and be part of miracles every day! I am looking forward to meeting you and your families, along with supporting you to make the choices that are right for you and your baby throughout pregnancy and beyond.

In my spare time, I love to travel, watch films (especially Disney ones) and spend time with friends!


Lorraine Hill

I find it extremely rewarding caring and supporting women and their families through one of the most important journeys of their lives. I am a Professional Midwifery Advocate supporting my colleagues to support women in their care. 

In my spare time I enjoy catching up with family and friends, exploring new places whilst walking my dog, trips to the theatre and binge watching Netflix.

Jessica White

I am so excited to work as a continuity midwife within the Sapphire team. I am  passionate about supporting women and their families during their pregnancy journey, to make informed decisions which are individual to them and their care. I enjoy offering antenatal education and hypnobirthing techniques to help achieve a positive birth experience.

Outside of work I love seeing my family and friends, travelling, exercising, reading, and binge-watching Netflix.


Tracey Hannant

I am passionate about supporting families to have a positive birth experience and look forward to building relationships that will enable me to understand and advocate for individualised choices.

I am a Professional Midwifery Advocate, supporting colleagues and the people in their care as part of this role. I am also a hypnobirthing practitioner, and am currently studying a Master’s Degree in Advanced Midwifery Practice.

In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog in the glorious Norfolk countryside, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.

Jodie Yerrell

Hello my name is Jodie. I am excited to be providing care to you as part of the Sapphire Team.

I love being a midwife and equally love spending time with my large family and friends. I enjoy meeting new people, getting out in the fresh sea air walking the dog, reading (a lot) and gardening when the weather is kind. 

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family and being able to provide more personalised care through your journey of pregnancy and birth.


Karen Kirby

I am an experienced midwife who has worked in all areas of midwifery. I am passionate about supporting and empowering women through their pregnancy journey, birth and postnatal period. 

When I am not at work I love to travel and socialise with friends and family.
