Being pregnant and becoming a new parent are life-changing events. We are here to offer support to parents and caregivers who are really struggling to cope with their day-to-day life during this time.
We see people during pregnancy (from 12 weeks), up until the baby is one year old. People tend to be involved with our service for three to six months.
We need a referral (a request for an appointment). This usually comes from a doctor (General Practitioner or ‘GP’). We will take referrals from midwives or other healthcare services (for example, a Well Child Tamariki Ora Provider).
After the referral, you can expect a phone call from someone on our team to help us decide if you are able to use the service.
The Day Assessment Unit (DAU) provides outpatient care, by appointment, for women with complex pregnancies who need closer monitoring.
As a specialised midwifery-led service within our Women's Assessment Unit (WAU)(), the team works closely with the relevant obstetric team or private obstetrician.
To access this service, you must have a referral sent by a doctor or other LMC to the community clinic at Greenlane (09 630 9781).
If you are health professional, you can find out more about making a referral to DAU here.()

If you need extra care during pregnancy because of medical conditions, past and present pregnancy complications or fetal abnormalities, we have a team of specialised midwives who can look after you. They will work with a multidisciplinary team and give information and on-going midwifery support as your pregnancy progresses.
If you have one of the High Risk Team midwives as your LMC, you are likely to need more than the usual number of appointments in pregnancy, depending on your needs. You may also need to see a range of health professionals.
To access this service, you must be referred by a doctor or other LMC. Our team will review the information we receive and either communicate with your LMC or contact you directly to arrange a clinic appointment.
