The Midwifery Service provided by the Domino Midwives is based on the belief that birth is a normal life event for most women. Our aim is to minimise intervention in this process. Support and trust in women are essential elements of our practice and we work to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
Our relationship with women involves the free exchange of information on which to base decisions. We believe this approach to be empowering and to enhance women's ability to make choices in pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatally. We like to take an holistic approach and encourage you to look at natural alternatives e.g. nutritional changes, acupuncture etc.. to minimise the medicalisation of your journey.
As there are a limited number of midwives in Wellington who offer home birth and water birth to women, we like to give priority to women choosing these options.
Continuity of midwifery care is central to our practice and to achieving good outcomes. Women's choice and our commitment to safety temper our practice.
