One-on-one care with your own midwife
When you're pregnant and birthing your baby, you want to have a midwife whom you can get to know and trust, so that you feel confident, informed, well-prepared and supported. This is why we offer different options for your care, so that you can have one midwife by your side, whether it is for your pregnancy, or for your complete pregnancy - birth - post birth experience.
Through other models of care, it is possible to be cared for by many different midwives, and many women value having continuity of care. This means you get to see the same midwife throughout your pregnancy, birth and new parenting period.
Private Midwifery Care
Private midwifery care maximises your chance of a normal, natural birth. It has long been recognised as the "Rolls Royce" of care for all women. You have the opportunity to build a relationship and work in partnership with your own midwife from early in your pregnancy through to your birth and the first 6 weeks with your new baby. This care ensures that you feel empowered, in control and safe throughout, while having 24/7 access to your midwife if something urgent should come up.
Private midwifery care is a continuity of carer model where I will partner with you to achieve a healthy, safe, rewarding and satisfying pregnancy, birth and new parenting experience, regardless of the complexity of your pregnancy.
Homebirth, waterbirth, VBAC, vaginal twin and vaginal breech births are actively encouraged and supported, and women with higher-risk pregnancies can also anticipate a safe pregnancy and birth, exceptionally low rates of intervention and an emotionally satisfying experience. You can expect a short, efficient, comfortable labour, extremely low rates of caesarean section, and high rates of drug-free birth without stitches. After baby is born, the majority of women go on to breastfeed without problems and experience very low rates of postnatal depression.

Birth at your local public hospital as a public patient under the care of the hospital staff. There is no cost to receive shared care through this service if you have a Medicare card.
