Contacting Your Midwife:

For non-urgent matters you may text, ring or email us at any time during the day.

If we are unable to answer immediately we will get back to you as soon as we can. You will be given our practice partners’ numbers if for any reason you cannot get hold of anyone of us.

Urgent midwifery care:

You MUST ring not text for urgent midwifery care or if you are in established labour. This is because if we are asleep (and midwives may need to sleep through the day) we don’t hear text messages. If we are off-call phone calls can be forward to our practice partners. So we know a phone call will be answered in a timely manner.

It is important you have money on your phone to call us urgently if you need to. This is your responsibility.

We DO NOT treat texts as urgent and if we are busy we may not look at them for some time, only answering when we can. We do not check our texts after business hours.

Our midwifery rooms are located at 287A South Rd, Caversham, Dunedin.

We work 9-5 Monday to Friday, and every second weekend. This is when we are available to answer inquiries and questions. For the weekends we are on-call we only do necessary or urgent visits.

After 6pm at night please be aware we will wait until the next morning to answer non-urgent inquiries.

Time off

I work Mon – Friday and every second weekend. My midwifery partner provides cover for me on my weekends off. From time to time I take a break or attend professional development which makes me unavailable. in these instances I will forward my phone to my back-up midwife. You may meet my backup midwife at anytime during your pregnancy by contacting her to organise a meeting. We have similar midwifery philosophies and practice. Normally I am able to give you plenty of notice of when I am away and I try to arrange time-off to avoid your due dates.

Get in touch

Every birth is a unique and personal experience. We will work with you to develop a birth plan that meets your needs. Providing you with the information to feel prepared and ready for your most amazing journey.
