Community Midwifery Team (CMT)

The CMT team provides complete antenatal care from booking for those women who are unable to access a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC). Once your baby is born the team of midwives will provide your care until your baby is six weeks old. The intrapartum (labour and birth) care is provided by the core midwives working in Delivery Suite.

The team provides ongoing midwifery care for those women who need consultant obstetrician secondary or tertiary level maternity care. These women will be receiving care from Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM), antenatal diabetic, or one of the specialist antenatal clinic teams.

They will visit any CMT woman who has been admitted to the antenatal / postnatal wards.

Maternity care charges

New Zealand citizens or those who have obtained permanent residence are entitled to publicly funded healthcare.

Non-residents may be required to pay for their healthcare. If you were not born in New Zealand and have not previously shown evidence of residency you should bring your passport with you on your first visit to the hospital for verification. 

To check if you will need to pay visit the Ministry of Health website
