STEP 1: SET-UP A MEETING

We'd love to meet you face-to-face and chat through our whole process. It's a great opportunity to get to know each other and ask any questions you may have.

STEP 2: CHOOSE PACKAGE

Select the package add-ons that you'd love and then book us in. From here you can either simply pay a 50% deposit or commence a payment plan.

STEP 3: BIRTH

We'll be on call night and day from two weeks before your due date until 1 week after. Simply keep us updated and we'll be there when the moment arrives!

YOUR ON CALL ALLOCATION

Your on call period is booked in from 2 weeks before your due date until 1 week after, making it a 3 week block in our calendar. Occasionally we have clients who are concerned that they may go into labour earlier or later than this allocation. While we would still make every effort to be there in this unlikely event, we reserve your 3 weeks when you have the highest chance of needing us. Should you require this 3 week timeframe moved forward, following the recommendation of your doctor/midwife, we can accommodate that. If you'd like a longer on call period (for example if you've decided you don't want an induction), an additional charge will apply, which can be booked in advance or added in the event of going more than a week past your due date.

Your First Hello
made a way for
their First Hello

We are committed to partnering with the LOVE MERCY FOUNDATION to contribute to the construction of a much-needed maternity ward alongside the Kristina Health Centre in Northern Uganda. These Ugandan women are forced to walk long distances when pregnant and often don't have access to lifesaving maternity services. They give birth at home or on the way to the hospital which causes the maternal and infant mortality rates in Uganda to be amongst the highest in the world.


By purchasing a package with us you are contributing to making a change to this injustice.
