West Wives is the home of 8 Independent Midwives who service the West Auckland community providing quality Lead Maternity Care (LMC) services to the growing families of our community. Midwifery care in New Zealand is FREE if you are a NZ Citizen, Resident or currently hold a consecutive 2 year work visa and this includes services provided by LMC midwives.

Independent Midwives provide care throughout your pregnancy, are there when you birth your beautiful baby and provide care until your newborn baby is 6 weeks of age where you will then be referred to a Well Child Provider Service of your choice eg: Plunket or Wai Health and returned to your GP for the continuation of your care.

Choosing an LMC to provide care for you can be a daunting experience, we have included profile pages of all the midwives that work from our rooms. Please feel free to click on the tabs to the left hand side to learn more. Contact details are provided for all of the midwives, so you may speak to them directly or please feel free to leave your name, number, due date and the name of the midwife that you would like to provide care for you on our voicemail at the rooms and they will phone you back the next time they are at the rooms for a clinic day.  Unlike your doctor, midwives are not in clinic every day, they hold one clinic per week, the rest of the time they are visiting new mums and babies at home or helping women birth their babies.
