Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose my Midwife?

Yes, of course you can choose who you wish to look after you (depending on each midwife’s availability).

When will my first appointment be?

Get in touch with us as soon as you know you’re pregnant. Generally you will have your first midwifery appointment at 8-10 weeks. At this visit she will explain how she will look after you and what early blood tests and scans are available as part of early pregnancy screening.

How often will I see my Midwife?

Your midwife will be your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) and will be your day-to-day point of contact as the weeks and months progress. Each midwife will have a different approach, and it is best to talk to your individual carer.

How much does Midwifery Care cost?

Midwifery care is free of charge in New Zealand, providing that you meet Ministry of Health criteria.
