midwife in Dunedin

We believe pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period are a special time in a family’s life and every person has their own unique experience of this.

As midwives in Dunedin it is our job to support you, deliver safe midwifery care and provide you with all the information you need to make good choices for yourself, for your baby and your family during this time.

It will be a privilege to journey alongside you in your pregnancy, birth and in early post-natal period. Even if this is not your first pepi growing your family brings new changes and challenges. Midwives are the ideal health professionals to provide primary perinatal care to people birthing in Aotearoa. The midwifery model of care is holistic, weaving together the physical, emotional, spiritual and whanau to provide individual care to meet your needs.

Research has shown people who go into pregnancy in optimal health are more likely to have healthy outcomes for themselves and their babies and they have a better postnatal recovery. For this reason we promote healthy lifestyle options and will provide you with common sense information to support a healthy pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatally.
