There is a real baby boom on at the moment, and it must be getting really hard for people to find a midwife. Last year when I had my baby, I had trouble finding a midwife too. I remember phoning around trying to find one when I was about 6 weeks pregnant, which is so early, and many were already booked up with clients. It must be even harder to find a midwife now. I reckon you’d need to book one before you even conceive!
Alot of people don’t know where to find a midwife. Here is a link to the search result on the white pages. You can narrow it down to find a midwife in a town near you.

We are also growing a Midwife Directory on our website.
Some midwives work independently. Some work as part of a hospital or clinic. Some will visit you at your home during your pregnancy, most you will have to go to their clinic rooms for your visits.
This is usually the same midwife that is with you during labour, unless her “backup” is called, or unless you are using a hospital midwife service or obstetrician. So it is important to find a midwife that you click with, and that you like.
Now that you have found the Breastmates website, you should Add to Your Favourites because we have a lot of great products that will be useful for you during your pregnancy, and when your baby is born.
