Hub Midwives

It can be a little overwhelming, but River Ridge East Birth Centre can help with your birth, from start to finish.

In NZ, all pregnant women are required to nominate a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC), who coordinates their maternity care. More than 75% of women/families chose a midwife as their LMC; midwives provide safe, women-focused services that families can trust.

Midwives are specialists in pregnancy and childbirth. They complete a three-year degree known as the ‘Bachelor of Midwifery’ in order to gain the knowledge, skills and experience they have to provide safe and professional midwifery care. Midwives practice in different settings. They work in the community and provide birth care at home, in maternity facilities including River Ridge East Birth Centre, and in hospitals. Midwives provide free maternity care to all eligible women in New Zealand and over 75% of women today have a midwife as their Lead Maternity carer (LMC).

Midwives work in partnership with their pregnant woman, and their partner, as well as the midwives employed by the birth centre. A midwife’s job is to ensure that the pregnant woman has care that best suits her individual needs.
The woman and the midwife develop a close, trusting relationship over the course of the pregnancy, sharing information and decision-making and recognising the active role that both play in the woman’s maternity care.

Contact us for a list of our current LMCs or online at www.findyourmidwife.co.nz/midwives/waikato. To be able to use River Ridge East Birth Centre, your LMC must have an access agreement.
