About Know My Midwife

Know My Midwife

Here at PPH we believe it’s important to surround yourself with the right people to support you on your pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey.

Firstly, you choose your Obstetrician – someone who will provide specialist pregnancy and birth related care. Alongside your obstetrician appointments we can also offer you continuity of care with one of our highly experienced PPH midwives through the “Know My Midwife” program. Our midwife with partner with your obstetrician to help care for your holistic health needs – physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cultural, as well as the needs of your baby both antenatally and postnatally.

How does the program work?

As part of our Know My Midwife program you will have a dedicated midwife to chat with on your journey through pregnancy, labour and birth. This midwife will also be there to support you throughout the 6 week postnatal period.

  • 1-2 antenatal appointments (currently offered via phone consultation) with a Peninsula Private Hospital midwife. These will be scheduled at regular intervals throughout your pregnancy. We can chat about your how your pregnancy is going, what your birth plans are, and practical things like what to pack in your bag and where to park. We will also make sure you are booked in to receive our complimentary birth class if you are interested.
  • 1-2 postnatal appointments (currently offered via phone consultation) with a Peninsula Private Hospital midwife. These will be scheduled at regular intervals throughout your pregnancy.
