Mamatoto Midwives offer the following care
This is our specialty! You choose two of our amazing midwives who will care for you during your pregnancy and labour and birth at home. Lots of pregnancy care and education, labour and birth care by your midwives at home and we stay with you after the birth until you are ready to be tucked into bed with your family and new baby! Come and meet up with us and we can tell you all about it!
We can offer either Shared Care (we are shared care accredited midwives with RWH, Mercy, and Sunshine hospitals) or a hospital support model where we see you at least four times in your pregnancy to help prepare you emotionally and physically for your birth and early parenting experience. We then care for you at home in early labour, then take you into hospital for your birth and stay with you as a support midwife. We can offer postnatal care and see you after your birth as often as needed for the first six weeks after your birth.
Pre pregnancy and early pregnancy counselling
