What if I have some health issues or complications in pregnancy. Can I still have my own private midwife ?

Yes. It is your choice which health professionals are involved in your care. Your midwife has a defined area of expertise and scope of practice which includes normal pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. If you have additional health needs, your midwife will work collaboratively with other professionals to ensure that you are receiving the right level of support and advice for your individual needs.
