Units and Services at NZMFMN
Referrals to MFM services should NOT be sent through the New Zealand Maternal Fetal Medicine Network (NZMFMN), they should be sent to your local unit, which is Auckland DHB, Wellington DHB or Christchurch DHB.
If you have any clinical questions or queries please also direct them to your local MFM unit.
There are three MFM units in the NZMFMN. The units are based in:
Each unit has Obstetrician and Gynaecologists with an expertise in MFM and in Auckland and Wellington Sub-specialists in MFM. In general the area served is fixed, although with a network there is the flexibility to provide cover between units when leave is taken.
All three units provide MFM assessment and standard management. Some procedures are performed in one or two centres and where appropriate women will be referred on from one MFM unit to another by the MFM staff.
The staff of the NZMFMN are involved with teaching and research. In new Zealand a fetal medicine update day is run twice a year. Further details on the study days will be available here when finalised.
