Our midwives work in small pods or teams of 2 or 3 midwives. The pod model of care means that you have the chance to know your midwives well and allows us to maintain a healthy balance in our own lives by having time off-call.
You will get to know the midwives on your team during your pregnancy. When you go into labour, one midwife from your team will attend you. However, there are rare times when your midwife may be at another birth or may need to be off-call to rest to ensure safe care. If this happens, another midwife that you do not know may answer you. While you are in care, midwives are on call for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long.
On rare occasions, your office or home visits will need to be rescheduled if your midwife is busy with a birth or emergency. We ask for your patience in these cases. We will give you the same personalized care when you need it!
Your midwives are supported by our clinical and business administrators, Jackie Fair and Freda Adema. These great women take care of scheduling your visits, booking specialist appointments and generally keeping the midwives on track! We couldn’t do our work without these two and we know that they will be a special part of your midwifery experience as well.
