Eartha, Fiona and Michelle are some of the most amazing people I’ve met and are the best midwives ever! Helping me give birth to a handsome boy in June 2022. I was extremely nervous as this was number 3 and my two births were very challenging. I was lucky enough to have the same midwives for all three. Eartha asked “what’s something we can do differently this time that might make it easier than the first two?”. And we came up with the idea of a home birth. This plan freaked me out big time, but with their full support and experience we did it! I gave birth at home in a birthing pool, which I was able to hire from the centre. The calm presence and knowledge that these women brought to my home birth was just phenomenal. I couldn’t have done it without them. I’d definitely recommend a home birth with these lovely ladies any day. Me and my partner are very grateful to have had the Helensville Birthing Centre Whanau guide us through all our birthing experiences and those early days of parenthood. They answer any questions you have promptly and are always just a quick phone call away when you need them. Forever thankful!
