Find out more about our Midwives

MIDWIVES@BOTANY are a team of midwives working together in the South/ East Auckland area to provide you with personalised midwifery care. Areas include: Beachlands, Maraetai, Howick, Botany Downs, Flat Bush, Papatoetoe, Otara, etc.

We follow the same Philosophy and values and work in very similar ways. We also hold regular meetings to ensure that we stay consistent with our care.

We offer maternity care to a wide variety of families from all cultural backgrounds. Our focus is on providing you with the best ability to make informed choices about your care, supporting you to birth where you feel most comfortable, be it at one of the local primary units (Botany Downs maternity Unit) or at Middlemore Hospital.

Our Philosophy

We offer primary midwifery care with a focus on physiological birth. Our belief is that birth should be beautiful, powerful and life changing. Birth is not only about giving birth, but also about making strong, competent, capable mothers.

We aim to work alongside you during pregnancy to help you grow a healthy baby and prepare  for an effective, powerful natural birth. During birth we provide support, guidance and offer our love and knowledge so that you and your partner/whanau feel supported and dignified.

 

Our goal is to provide  confidential, competent, responsible care in a respectful and culturally acceptable way. You wil be advised of your health needs and treatment options available to you. You will be involved in all decision making about your care and respected for your need for privacy.

We have provided lots of good pregnancy advice in our maternity resources section, to help you learn more about us and about your journey towards giving birth and becoming a mother. We would love to share this amazing experience with you and your family.
