Mrs Bloxham, who looked up her own records and a former neighbour’s as well as viewing some people’s records several times a day, claimed her actions also resulted from “fear about health, illness and death”.
The midwife wrote to the panel she had “learnt a lesson” from the “unchangeable events”.
“I hope to be able to move forward and put this harrowing time behind me,” she said.
Panel chair Yvonne Brown said Mrs Bloxham had “abused her position of trust” over a sustained period.
“We are satisfied that Mrs Bloxham’s misconduct will have brought the reputation of the profession into disrepute,” she said.
University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust added: “The midwife concerned has not worked for the trust in over a year.
“As soon as these allegations came to light, we launched an immediate investigation and referred this individual to the NMC.”
