Midwife means 'with woman' and midwifery places a woman at the centre of her care. Our midwifery philosophy is grounded in respect for a woman during her journey to motherhood. Pregnancy, birth and parenting are considered healthy events with inherent importance to society. Every woman has the right to self-determination, choice, information and evidence informed care within a holistic framework which encompasses a woman's physical, social, cultural and emotional needs.
