Nīkau Midwives

Are you looking for a midwife on the Kāpiti Coast?

Nīkau Midwives commenced practice in 1998 to provide extensive midwifery care to the women of the Kāpiti Coast.

Nīkau Midwives aim to provide continuity of midwifery care through pregnancy, labour, birth and up to six weeks after the baby’s birth. We have found that this care leads to excellent results both in terms of satisfaction and outcomes for women and their babies.

Nīkau Midwives have consistent back-up from our group midwives and colleagues. We have regular organised time off and during your pregnancy you can meet and discuss your care plan with a back-up midwife either at an arranged appointment or by coming along to the weekly coffee morning. Check out our FaceBook page to see when our next coffee morning will be.

Nīkau Midwives are all Registered with the Midwifery Council of New Zealand and are members of the New Zealand College of Midwives whose Standards of Practice and regular review processes guide our care. www.midwife.org.nz add www.midwiferycouncil.health.nz

Areas covered

Full midwifery care is provided for women living from Paekakariki in the south to Ōtaki in the north and the Akatarawas in the east. Women in Ōtaki are on the border of the MidCentral (Palmerston North based) and Capital & Coast (Wellington based) District Health Boards. Nīkau Midwives access Capital & Coast DHB facilities and services so provide care only for women happy to access any additional care via Paraparaumu, Kenepuru and Wellington. Postnatal care and/or shared care is offered for women living from Paekakariki to Ōtaki.
