We provide full care from conception till 6 weeks after the birth of your baby.

We will give you information and referrals for appropriate screening and blood tests as required.

You will be able to give birth to your baby in the environment of your choice - your home, Paraparaumu Maternity Unit, or Wellington Women's Hospital.

We can also provide shared care with specialists.

We can also provide the services of a lactation consultant (IBCLC) as part of our postnatal care.  This service protects and promotes breastfeeding to assist mothers to give their babies the optimum start in life.

At this time there is no government funding for lactation consultants (IBCLCs) and so if there is a requirement for lactation expertise beyond normal midwifery care then there is a charge for this assistance.
