Congratulations on finding yourself on the journey to motherhood. I believe pregnancy and childbirth are normal life events and should be protected and celebrated as such. Working as a hospital based core midwife I missed the continuity of care that LMC midwifery practice allows, caring for women from the early antenatal period right through delivery into the postnatal period until discharge at four to six weeks following birth. I aim to work in full partnership with each woman. Which I do by giving and sharing information so each woman can make informed choices on her pregnancy journey.
I have been a registered midwife since 1998, I graduated in the UK and worked as a staff midwife at two busy maternity units. I moved to NZ in 2005 and became a staff midwife at North Shore Hospital. More recently I have been working here at Maternity Associates as our practice manager and as an LMC at our experienced midwifery practice. I am married to Norman and we have three daughters. In my spare time I love to do things with my family and walk our dogs.
I look forward to being a part of your pregnancy journey.
Hi my name is Sarah Delooze, I am a registered midwife working with Maternity Associates. I moved from the UK in 2001 and have 4 beautiful children. Experiencing childbirth sparked my passion for midwifery and the unique partnership between a midwife, the woman and her family is so precious and was something I knew I wanted to be apart of.
I believe pregnancy and birth are normal life events that should be celebrated and treasured. My role as a midwife is to empower you throughout your journey offering evidence based information which will help you make the best decision for you and your growing family.
I offer continuity of care to women throughout the antenatal, labour and birth. Following the birth of your baby visits will continue at home for up to 6 weeks as you transition into parenthood. I am able to provide antenatal visits at home if required.
Working in a large practice allows me to access a wealth of knowledge with other health professionals. I work closely with Hannah Stevens who also shares the same philosophies as myself. Between us we are able to provide 24/7 care.
