Lead Maternity Carer (LMC)

Pregnant women are required to choose a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) who coordinates their maternity care. Lead Maternity Carers can be midwives, GPs with a diploma in obstetrics or obstetricians. LMCs are contracted through the Ministry of Health to provide a complete maternity service to you.

A lot of women find it a daunting process at the beginning of their pregnancy when they are told to find a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC). All you have to do is contact us and we will carefully explain your maternity care choices.

We can support you to birth at Home, Waitakere Hospital, Helensville Birth Unit or Birthcare Parnell.
