A number of Midwives work in the Helensville and Northwest Auckland area and are available to be your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) throughout your pregnancy, birth and the few weeks after baby's arrival.
While an independent midwife is the most common LMC, you could also choose a specialist obstetrician, and a small number of GPs also offer their services as LMCs. LMCs are fully funded by the government, so there is no fee for using them.
It's best to get in touch with a Midwife as soon as possible in your pregnancy. Midwives are able to support you to birth wherever you choose, be that at home, at the Helensville Birthing Centre, or at hospital. They'll organise your maternity care including blood tests, ultrasound scans and any specialist referrals that are necessary.
The following midwives all have a relationship with us, so are able to use our facilities to support you.
I first thought of becoming a Midwife when as a young student nurse I witnessed the magic of birth, twenty five years later I still find birth magical. I was further inspired by the wonderful Midwives who supported me to birth my own four children at home. I am passionate about supporting women and their families along their pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding journey, giving them the information to make the choices that best suit them. I work in the North West area from Riverhead to Glorit, across to Wainui in the east and Muriwai in the west. I offer birthing at home, Helensville Birthing Centre and Waitakere Hospital.
You can contact me on my cell phone 021 889 794 or send me an email.
I offer midwifery care based in West Auckland and cover from Henderson up to Helensville.
I have great confidence in women’s bodies and in the natural process of pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum. I have a real passion for midwifery and aim to empower women by giving them up-to-date information to make informed decisions, to grow in confidence as mothers and as women and feel positive about themselves, their bodies and abilities. I believe that continuity of care is the key to effective midwifery. Building an effective working partnership with women and providing holistic care can empower women and promote wellness. Women are the cornerstone of society, by promoting wellness in women, you promote wellness in her whanau and thus in the community.
Providing tailored care I promote primary birthing settings at both home and Helensville Birthing Unit and do have access to Waitakere Hospital if needed.

Hi, I'm Eartha Healy a registered midwife living in Kaukapakapa with my husband and four children. I take a small caseload of 2-3 women per month, this allows me time to really get to know the women and families I provide care for.

I cover from Glorit in the north, out to South Head, down to Muriwai and across to Riverhead in the west.

I believe childbirth is a momentous time in a woman’s life, changing and challenging her very core. I am very passionate about supporting women in owning and leading their own birth experience. I provide individualised, safe, woman centred care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period up to six weeks. I believe childbirth is a natural and normal life event. Women should be empowered to make informed decisions around their pregnancy and their baby/s. I am happy and confident to support your birth at a birthing unit, home or at Waitakere Hospital. I was born in New Zealand and live in Waimauku with my very supportive Husband and two children. My clinic space is based in Kumeu at 20a Access Road. I run clinic 8.30-5pm Thursdays. Please feel free to email, call or text me if you would like to talk further.
I have been a midwife for 20 years and am still amazed at the uniqueness of each woman’s experience. I have worked in all areas of midwifery but my passion and expertise lies in birthing unit (usually Helensville Birthing Centre) and home birth. My closest, local hospital is Waitakere (WDHB). I hope to support, encourage and empower women and their families to have the best start to this important journey. I live in Muriwai and hold a clinic in Helensville. I’m a member of the Helensville and Kumeu Midwives and care for women in North/North West Auckland. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
