Congratulations on your pregnancy. My name is Neta and I am a registered midwife working in East and South Auckland area, providing midwifery care from confirmation of pregnancy through to six weeks postpartum. During pregnancy there are many decisions to make and my aim is to empower women by providing evidence based information and enable women and their families to make decisions that will best suit their individual needs. I am passionate about the normal, physiological process of pregnancy and birth and promote this by discussing healthy diet and lifestyle. Sometimes, additional support is required and I work closely with the medical team in Middlemore to ensure the safety and well-being of the woman and baby. I work with a team of experienced midwives who are passionate about woman-centred care. We support each other to have regular time off and work on a roster. This means I may not be present at your birth, but be assured you are in caring and trusted hands.
