About Gold Coast Midwifery Practice
Pregnancy and childbirth are normal, physiological events that can have deep and lasting effects on a woman’s life. As midwives working with women through this event we strive to respect and trust in this process and place our clients at the centre of our care.

We will walk in partnership with you, through your pregnancy, birthing and early parenting journey, collaborating with other health professionals if necessary.

At Gold Coast Midwifery Practice we encourage all our clients to actively participate in and share responsibility for their care, utilising the innate wisdom of each individuals body and that of her baby.  We believe in a woman’s choice to have access to continuity of care and a known carer of her choice. We also believe that all women have the right to care that is not only physically, emotionally and culturally safe, but also care that feels safe to her.  
As midwives we believe we have the responsibility to provide evidence based information that empowers all women to make informed choices for themselves and their babies, thereby enabling them to achieve the best possible experience.
