Maternity Care

East Tamaki Healthcare (ETHC) offers a choice of care to every registered pregnant woman. You can choose between shared care, independent midwife care, care at the hospital, or care with a specialist. 

Shared Care

ETHC and Middlemore Hospital (MMH) provide shared care for you if you are pregnant and choose our shared care model. Shared care includes 10 antenatal visits to your GP and midwife prior to delivery at MMH. Discuss the best option for you with your nurse or GP at any of our ETHC clinics.

Independent Midwife

You can choose to have your own midwife who provides care throughout your pregnancy both for antenatal and postnatal care. Discuss the best option for you with your nurse or GP at any of our ETHC clinics.

Hospital Setting

If you wish to be taken care of in hospital settings, you can choose MMH or Auckland Hospital. Discuss the best option for you with your nurse or GP at any of our ETHC clinics.

Specialist Care

If you wish to be taken care of by an obstetrician and are not sure how to go about it, please discuss the best option for you with your nurse or GP at any of our ETHC clinics.
