One-on-one care with your own midwife
We believe every woman should have a midwife whom she can get to know and trust, so that she feels confident, informed, well-prepared and supported through pregnancy, birth and the new parenting experience. Evidence shows that having one-on-one midwifery care minimises intervention and greatly increases your chance of a normal, uncomplicated birth.
We offer different options for your care so that you have one midwife by your side, whether it is for your pregnancy, or your for your complete pregnancy - birth - post birth experience.
Private Midwifery Care
Private midwifery care has long been recognised as the "Rolls Royce" of care for all women, and it is the model of care that provides the very best outcomes for mothers and babies in terms of safety and lowest intervention rates. It provides 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 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.
My service supports homebirth, waterbirth, VBAC, vaginal twin birth, vaginal breech birth and high-risk pregnancies and births. Women choosing to have care with me can 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, healthy and successful breastfeeding is the norm, with no known case of postnatal depression to date.
About half of the births that I attend are in hospital, and the other half are homebirths.
Antenatal Shared Care
Shared care is where your care is shared between me and your local hospital. I provide your pregnancy care in comfortable surroundings where you will have no waiting time for your appointments. You will give 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.
