If I choose continuity of care, who will be my midwife? Will my midwife provide all my pregnancy, birth and postnatal midwifery care?

At New Life Midwifery there are 4 midwives who each have a small caseload of women who are due to birth every calendar month (unless the midwife is planning to have scheduled annual leave). Usually you meet your midwife at your booking appointment. Your primary midwife will see you for the majority of your scheduled appointments in pregnancy, and is on call for emergencies too. During your pregnancy you will have opportunities to meet the other midwives in clinic as they will provide back up if your midwife is unavailable for any reason (for example if she is sick, on leave, or providing birth support).
