Midwifery Service


New Beginnings - midwifery care designed for you.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
We are a group of caseloading midwives dedicated to providing women and their families with continuity of care. Each of us offers individualised care and support throughout pregnancy, birth and postnatally, with the opportunity to meet the other midwives we work with during this time if they wish. Our goal is to work in partnership with women in the hope that each childbirth experience both enhances and enriches their lives.
We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of women and their babies and, once registered with us, we are available for urgent enquiries 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We offer care for women who wish to birth at Papakura Maternity Unit, Pukekohe Primary Birthing Unit or for those who wish to birth at home. We also support and specialise in women who wish to birth in water.
Please feel free to call us if you have questions about our services or wish to make a booking.
