Welcome!

We are a group of experienced midwives working in West Auckland and we offer a different kind of service.

We work together as a very close team to deliver optimal care and when you book with one midwife, you automatically have two caring for you.

This has many advantages, the main one being that you know the 'backup midwife' as well as you do your LMC.  

It also means two experts to solve any problems, two sets of hands to assess the wellbeing of both you and your baby and two of us to support you through this miraculous adventure.

We cover the whole of West Auckland from Avondale to Murawai, Piha to Hobsonville. We provide labour care at either Waitakere or North Shore Hospitals and are happy for you to use either Helensville Birthing Centre or Parnell Birthcare for your postnatal stay.

Congratulations on becoming pregnant. We are delighted that you have visited our website and we look forward to providing you with warm, friendly, expert care.

We are excited to announce some changes in our practice:

We are very happy to welcome Geraldine and Joce to the Due West team.  They will be working together closely, the same way that Sarah and Karen do.  

 

QUOTES

“Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby- awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.”

― Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid

 

“Before you were conceived, I wanted you. Before you were born, I loved you. Before you were an hour, I would die for you. This is the miracle of love.”

― Maureen Hawkins

 

“Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.”

― Bill Gates

 

“When you're pregnant, you can think of nothing but having your own body to yourself again; yet after giving birth you realize that the biggest part of you is now somehow external, subject to all sorts of dangers and disappearance, so you spend the rest of your life trying to figure out how to keep her close enough for comfort. That's the strange thing about being a mother: Until you have a baby, you don't even realize how much you were missing one.”

― Jodi Picoult

 

“It is a well-documented fact that guys will not ask for directions. This is a biological thing. This is why it takes several million sperm cells... to locate a female egg, despite the fact that the egg is, relative to them, the size of Wisconsin.”

― Dave Barry

 

“When you moved, I felt squeezed with a wild infatuation and protectiveness. We are one. Nothing, not even death, can change that.”

― Suzanne Finnamore, The Zygote Chronicles
