We are a group of midwives with varying levels of experience. We are based in Pukekohe and hold our clinics close to the new Franklin Hospital on Glasgow Road.
We provide midwifery continuity of care and birth at Pukekohe Maternity Unit, home or Middlemore.
We are all on Find your Midwife website and this will show you our availability but if we have provided care for you in the past please contact us even if Find your Midwife states that month is full. We will try to make space if at all possible.
We work closely as a team and to support us in times of holiday or sickness we have around 4 locum midwives who you may meet along your journey. We support each other and you which ensures that you have comprehensive 24 hour care while we are able to take some vital down time with our own families.
How do I access this service?
To make an appointment with one of the midwives in Franklin Midwives please contact each midwife directly. If the midwife you contact is not able to provide you with care…
Working hours are hard to document for midwives as they vary day to day. Most of our clinics are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and we all provide a combination of morning and afternoon clinics to try and meet your other responsibilities.
When we are not in clinic we are out and about visiting new mum's and their babies at home or in Pukekohe Maternity Unit or even assisting a mum to birth a new baby.
At times these activities can take longer than anticipated and labours happen at any time. This means there may be times when we need to cancel and reschedule your appointment. This can be at quite short notice so keep an eye on your phone on days you have an appointment. We suggest you put your appointment in your phone and we will write it on your booklet.
Weekends and evenings after 6pm and until 8am are for urgent work only.
