Central Coast Homebirth - We bring our care to you!
ANTENATAL VISITS AT HOME
All antenatal visits are in your home at a time that works for you. That means no rushing to appointments and we visit monthly until 32 weeks.
From 32 weeks, we then move to fortnightly visits until you are 36 weeks.
At 36 weeks, we then transition to weekly visits, monitoring you and your baby until the day of birth.
From 37 weeks, you will have us available 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Having focused support, especially at this time, is invaluable for you and your family’s peace of mind.
DEDICATED TEST SERVICE
During pregnancy there are a number of routine tests and investigations that are offered to you. We do this for you and take care of ensuring that you have prompt results and follow up if required. This can sometimes feel overwhelming to keep track of, so we can help explain any details or help answer any questions or concerns should any additional issues arise.
Health Professionals at hand
If you find that you need some additional support during your pregnancy, we can provide the relevant referral as and when required. We will discuss with you any worries or concerns you might have and provide guidance.
TWO MIDWIVES AT BIRTH
When you are in established labour you will have two midwives at birth. We supply all equipment, including a birth pool and TENS machine (pool liner and accessories not included).
Birth is a beautiful journey, and we will make sure you feel nurtured, safe and cared for.

We are trained in acuneedling and have lots of advice on how to keep you comfortable, well and healthy, including getting a good night’s sleep.

POST BIRTH CHECK
Having supported you through labour, we will carry out a post-birth baby check and help you with feeding initiation. There is a lot happening at this time and having a dedicated midwife beside you can help everyone feel relaxed and at ease, all of which help with establishing a comfortable experience for you and your baby.
