Midwifery Service


Hauraki Midwives is a collective of registered midwives working to provide continuity of care to women and their families during the child-birthing year.  Each midwife has a caseload of 3-5 women per month and we provide antenatal, labour / birth and postnatal care.

Our philosophy of practice is that pregnancy and child birth are normal and natural life events. Our clients are generally well women who we encourage to be proactive in their own health and self care during pregnancy. We are happy to support women to birth at home or North Shore Hospital and offer water births if desired.

We embrace the use of complementary therapies in pregnancy – e.g. acupuncture, massage, homeopathy, herbal preparations, hypnobirthing and essential oils if our clients choose. Alternatively we also work collaboratively with other health professionals should any complications of pregnancy, labour or birth arise.

Our care is professional, holistic in nature, woman-centered and family friendly (for client and midwife) and aims to provide ‘continuity of care’ rather than ‘continuity of carer’.
