Cindy Zhou - Midwife
I am a Lead Maternity Carer that focuses on the individual needs of each mother to ensure she chooses the best care for the birth of her child.
I am a self-employed midwife who provides continuity of care to women throughout pregnancy, labour and birth, until 4-6 weeks postnatally. I used to work as a core midwife in Auckland Hospital for 2 years. I do deliveries in the Labour and Birthing Suite of Auckland Hospital. After birth, I will do home visits. I am also a Childbirth Educator teaching Mandarin classes for Asian Family Assistance Trust.
I mainly look after mothers in Central Auckland. However, I am happy to take women from West Auckland, North Shore, and East Auckland if I am available.
Back up midwives:
Helen Han and Victoria Hu
English & Mandarin
Bachelor of Health Science (Midwifery), Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
Philosophy of care:
I believe that pregnancy and childbirth is a normal life event for healthy women. Therefore, I aim to support women and their family with education, guidance, and encouragement to promote the physiological process of the childbirth experience. I utilise ADHB referral services when appropriate intervention is indicated and required.
