At North West Private Hospital, our midwifery team is here to support your journey to parenthood. We offer a personalised one on one program for privately insured patients throughout your pregnancy.
The Know Your Midwife service is a partnership between a patient’s obstetrician and selected midwives who care exclusively for individual patients during the antenatal phase of their pregnancy through to delivery.
As a privately insured maternity patient, once you have booked in with your obstetrician to manage your pregnancy, a midwife will be allocated to you for the duration of the pregnancy.
You will then see the same midwife for all antenatal visits, providing you with continuity of care, peace of mind, support and building a trusting relationship between midwife and patient.
When you go into labour your Know Your Midwife midwife is contacted and will attend the hospital and provide care to you during labour.
Having a midwife that knows the patient and their pregnancy history helps provide a calm, relaxing, reassuring environment during the birthing process.
The midwife will also have in depth knowledge of your personal birthing plan as this is developed during the antenatal visits.
