Midwifery Service


We are experienced midwives working in West Auckland and we offer a different kind of service. We work together as a very close team to deliver optimal care and when you book with one midwife, you automatically have two caring for you.

This has many advantages, the main one being that you know the 'back-up midwife' as well as you do your LMC.

It also means two experts to solve any problems, two sets of hands to assess the wellbeing of both you and your baby and two of us to support you through this miraculous adventure.

Our midwives are:

We cover the whole of the West Auckland area.  We choose to provide labour care mainly at Waitakere Hospital but may sometimes continue labour care at North Shore Hospital if your pregnancy care changes and requires you to birth at North Shore Hospital due to complications.  We do not provide labour/birth care at Auckland Hospital.  We are happy for you to use either Helensville Birthing Centre or Parnell Birthcare for your postnatal stay.

Congratulations on becoming pregnant. We are delighted that you have visited our website and we look forward to providing you with warm, friendly, expert care.
