Coastal Midwifery Team

Areas covered

We are a team of 12 Midwives and 1 Maternity care assistant who work shifts to cover 24 hours per day.

We are a fully integrated team which means we provide care where the client wishes – either at home or in hospital. Currently we have a 7% homebirth rate.

We would like you to contact us as soon as you know you are pregnant, either telephone the office or leave a message. There is an answer phone available if we are out. Alternatively you can make an appointment to see the Midwife at your Doctor’s surgery.

We look forward to meeting you.
