Congratulations on your pregnancy! My name is Ruby Melsom. I am a registered midwife based in South Auckland. I provide continuity of care for women wishing to birth at Birthcare Parnell and home. I believe in the physiological process of birth and I am passionate about working with women and their families to achieve a positive birth experience, ensuring that you are fully informed of all your options. If you require specialist input during your pregnancy, birth or postpartum period then we work closely alongside the obstetricians at Auckland Hospital to work out the best care plan with you.
