Melanie has been a private midwife since 2008 and has worked providing homebirth for her entire career. Melanie gave birth to her own two children at home. When you hire Melanie you have your own midwife for your pregnancy, birth and for 6 weeks afterwards. Melanie can do all of your pregnancy, birth and postnatal care in your home and at her home office. She can write referrals for blood tests and ultrasounds if you would like these. Melanie is also Medicare eligible so you will get a portion of the fee rebated back from Medicare. Melanie has a team of midwives that she works with so every woman has a second known midwife.
Melanie services the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Hawkesbury areas. It is recommended that you make contact with Melanie once you know you are pregnant. Email is a great way to make contact at [email protected]
When emailing please let Melanie know where you are located and your approximate due date if you know this so Melanie can determine her availability
Melanie provides a full care package which includes
- A second midwife, pool, borrowing library and all of your clinical care
- Antenatal/pregnancy care appointments which last around an hour
- Birth care in your home as your midwife (along with your second midwife) OR in hospital as support
- Postnatal care to 6 weeks in your home
