Counties Manukau Health Maternal & Fetal Medicine Midwifery Service
The Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) midwives are a small team of community midwives with expertise in caring for women with pre-existing medical conditions, complicated multiple pregnancies or pregnancies where mother and/or baby has a medical complication.
The MFM midwives work as part of a multidisciplinary team including Obstetricians (pregnancy specialists) and Obstetric Physicians (medical specialists with a particular focus on pregnancy). The team have a weekly clinic at Module 10 in Manukau SuperClinic at Manurewa.
The MFM midwives provide support to self-employed and DHB midwives with advice and education regarding common medical conditions and their management. They liaise with Specialists on behalf of other midwives. They also provide antenatal and postnatal care for women with very complex pre-existing medical conditions where pregnancy can cause potential problems to either mum or baby. Care during labour and birth is provided by midwives employed by Counties Manukau Health at Middlemore Hospital.
Both the midwives in the Maternal Fetal Medicine Midwifery Service carry cellphones. When the midwife first contacts you she will give you her cellphone number so you can contact them during their working hours. Out of hours contact for support and advice is given via Birthing and Assessment on (09) 276 0056.
