We aim to provide high quality care to all women during pregnancy, ensuring that we assist them to have the best outcomes possible. Learn more about what to do when you think you may be pregnant at HealthInfo. When labour occurs prior to 34 weeks we transfer care to the nearest tertiary hospital, usually Christchurch Womens Hospital. Midwifery care provided in the unit includes women admitted antenatally, during labour or postnatally.

Lead Maternity Carers can be midwives, obstetricians or general practitioners with a diploma in obstetrics. LMCs are contracted through the Ministry of Health to provide a complete maternity service to you.

Our practice of midwives are connected by common threads — Love, Respect, Partnership, Legacy. We Love the work we do and feel privileged to join you as you prepare and welcome a new person or persons into your life. Respect takes many forms, we feel that you should make choices about your body so to do this we ensure you are fully informed. Every person is unique and we honour the culture that you bring to your experience with us, we learn as much from you as you do from us. In order to achieve Respect we work in Partnership with you planning each step focusing on quality care through small caseloads, continuity and being woman centered.

Finding a midwife to be your lead maternity carer

If you are unable to find an LMC midwife, preferably contact us via our online form or if needed phone us on Find MW Leave a message and we will ring you back. If you know your NHI hospital number please state it when contacting us. You may register with an LMC as soon as you become pregnant.

A midwife LMC is responsible for your maternity care throughout your pregnancy, birth and until 6 weeks after the birth of your baby. Your GP can arrange pregnancy blood tests and scans and can see you for any concerns. Ask your GP when you should visit them next if you are waiting for confirmation on booking with a midwife.

Are you a home birth midwife in New Zealand not listed here? All the midwives listed on our site have specifically registered with us as home birth midwives. Check out our your home birth page for advice and guidance on choosing a midwife, or read about the maternity system in New Zealand here. Having a student midwife at your birth is a wonderful opportunity for them as future midwives, as well as for you and your whanau.

The Midwifery Council does not employ or recommend midwives, we do hold the Register of Midwives. Simply type in the name of your midwife, and the Register will show if they have a current practising certificate and other information such as their qualifications and any conditions on their practice. In New Zealand, registration is for life, so midwives remain in the Register even when they are not practising. This is a good option.

The first health professional you see in your pregnancy is required to provide you with information regarding the options you have for an LMC and place of birth. I'm pregnant - what choices do I have about my pregnancy care? To receive free care from an obstetrician you must be referred by a midwife or GP. Guidelines for referring LMCs are available here Private obstetricians can also provide normal maternity care. There are charges for this service An obstetrician will attend part of the labour and birth and shares care in the six weeks following birth with a GP.
