We share knowledge, experience and expertise. We are committed to providing continuity of care within the group. Our on call schedule ensures that our availability for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week for consultation or delivery is never compromised.
We work with you in planning what is best for you and your pregnancy. Consulting and booking with Birthright can be done at any stage in your pregnancy. Your first specialist consultation may last for one hour, as we discuss your needs and how the care is organized. Your care plan will include antenatal checks, diagnostic tests and screening.
Follow up consultations are for 15 minutes in most cases but obviously longer as the need arises. You will have a visit with our antenatal care midwives to discuss your birthplan and issues to help prepare you for parenthood. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and we will discuss antenatal classes with you.
Delivery is at National Womens at Auckland City Hospital. We will also discuss the options of private anesthetic and paediatric care.
