A midwife who wrote a Facebook post lifting the lid on incest and abuse in south Auckland has been made to take it down. Some teenage mothers-to-be had chronic health problems and infections, and learning deficits due to abuse, neglect and a lack of an education, she wrote. Others had to share homes and beds with extended family members and lived in homes strewn with rubbish and drug paraphernalia. Hart-Murray worked in Counties Manukau for five years but is now retired for medical reasons. The year-old said she wanted to open New Zealanders' eyes to the reality of life for some people.

Hey guys. Just wanted some input please. My friend is 6 weeks pregnant and currently looking for a midwife. I'm just trying to help her out a bit. Also I'm not familiar at all with middlemore. Once you've delivered do you have to transfer somewhere else.

Thamks I'd appreciate any info you have. Thanks a lot everyone. I sent her the link to this thread. Makes me wanna be pregnant again! New Posts. Members Profile. Post Reply. I do know that if you birth Middlemore and it's straight forward, you will be transfered straight out to Papakura Maternity Hospital opposite Massey Park. I don't have much to say about that place either.

But that's just my experience. I can give you the name of the midwife I had for post natal care, she delivered my aunties 3 babies and also my cousins latest addition to the family. Her name is Fiona Clement I birthed at Middlemore after complications and I couldnt fault them it was really good there, I transferred out closer to home to Papakura afterwards for my families convenience more than anything they wanted me to stay.

Pukekohe maternity has a really good reputation, I was originally booked in there but they didnt have space on the day i had some complications birthing because of my heart condition and they were really good, kept me informed of everything they were doing the whole way, seriously i am a fussy tart and i could not fault them and couldnt recommend Danielle highly enough.

It depends, I was 19 at the time and they automatically told me that due to my age and it being my first pregnancy I'd have no choice BUT to birth at Middlemore. I used Irene Vivian who is based in Wattle Downs. She was fantastic antenatally well for the short time I saw her. Can't comment about the labour and postnatal care as she wasn't really involved that much but my sister who also used her said she is wonderful.

Middlemore has opened a new birthing suite which is meant to be nice. I had a few grumbles about Middlemore but my "story" is way different to most and on the whole, I found them excellent. I transfered to Papakura for a week once Ashleigh was discharged and although run down, it was nice there. Again my experience was alot different as I had already looked after my baby for 3 months before we went there so I knew what I was doing by that stage lol!

I had Briahna at Middlemore and it was fine and this was before they opened the new thing. Dont know what everyones problem with it actually. I had to stay overnight because she had low blood sugars but i was transferred to Botany the next day. I reccommend botany it was nice! Mum to Briahna Robyn, 3yrs. Apart from the fact that they are real. The Nurses were totally run off their feet.

But they were nice and helpful enough. The Docs were really good. And the Nurse I has while in Labour was amazing. We ended up sending the team flowers and chocolates to say thank you. I wa high risk so didnt have a regular MW. Cant help. Only if you have a normal birth. I heard Botany is awesome.

The midwives there were amazing, as was the food and care in general. We had lots of problems with breastfeeding and getting bub to latch but they were there on the hour every hour helping me. If you birth at Auck and it's straight forward you get 3 standard days at Birthcare post birth.

I dont have a problem with it , apart from the fact my friend went in there with an infection in her blood stream and because the nurses werent charting properly ended up overdosing her on medication and her liver went into failure and had to be rushed to Auckland.

But honestly each to their own. I haven't personally had a bad experience in the birthing unit there. Papakura Maternity Hosp is a bit depressing though, I will admit that. I had a scare at 37 weeks and was stuck with a group of midwives that didn't seem to know what the hell they were doing or what was going on with my baby. After that I quickly changed so I could birth at Auck. Wasn't prepared to risk the life of my baby with midwives I didn't feel comfortable with. They were part of SAMC.

Mangere Lead Maternity Carers and Midwives

The Midwifery Council does not employ or recommend midwives, we do hold the Register of Midwives. Simply type in the name of your midwife, and the Register will show if they have a current practising certificate and other information such as their qualifications and any conditions on their practice. In New Zealand, registration is for life, so midwives remain in the Register even when they are not practising. This is a good option. Most new mothers are happy to pass on the contact details for their midwife if she was happy with the maternity care she received.
