Private midwifery

As a mum-to-be, you are embarking on an amazing and sometimes daunting journey.  Private midwifery care supports women through their pregnancy, birth and early days with their new baby.  It's about care with a midwife you know and trust.  Sadly, most Australian women will not see the same midwife twice.  I believe that having the same dependable, knowledgeable and caring midwife by your side is what makes all the difference.

There is now a wealth of evidence - including fresh new research - that shows that women and babies can expect safer, healthier outcomes in the short- and longer-term when they choose a midwife for their care.

  • More likely to have a normal birth            
  • Less likely to be admitted to hospital during pregnancy
  •  More likely to have a positive and satisfying birth experience            
  • Less likely to have an assisted birth (ventouse / forceps)                                
  • Less likely to have a caesarean
  • Less likely to give birth to a low birth weight or pre-term baby                                
  • More likely to successfully breastfeed            
  • Less likely to request an epidural for labour pain relief
