Congratulations on your pregnancy.
New Beginnings provide full midwifery care to women of the Hutt Valley from Petone through to Upper Hutt.
From JULY 1 2018 women will have the benefit of team midwifery care throughout pregnancy, labour and postnatal care.
New Beginnings is an experienced, established practice that work in complete partnership so over the course of the pregnancy, women will get to know us all very well. We will alternate weekly so there will be midwives on for urgent care and births, a midwife for antenatal care and a midwife for postnatal care.
We have decided to work this way as we feel it will have many positives including less stress for women being cared for for by an unknown 'back up' midwife, appointments not being rescheduled due to urgent care or births and less burnout from 24/7 on-call work therefore women and babies will have safe, considered, well balanced midwifery care.
