The best standard of care a woman and her family could experience is continuity of care with a midwife, along with partnership with other care providers if the need arises. Continuity of care means that a woman has the same care provider throughout her pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. Melanie prides herself on providing continuity of care to her clients, whether they are choosing to give birth at home or in hospital.
Many women come to choose private midwifery care out of a desire to improve upon their previous pregnancy and birth experiences, out of dissatisfaction of hospital based care options or out of a philosophical belief that this model of care is the best and safest option. Melanie offers care that focuses on providing each woman and family with the particular preferences they desire.
