‘I found that after each child, there were little things that were forgotten, and I had many nurses tell me “its your fourth, you can probably tell us what to do”. This lack of help has prompted me to help as many mothers as possible achieve the dream of being able to breastfeed their baby. Whether its their first or 10th baby, all mums need support.’

Sally and Deb are endorsed midwives, who both also work on the maternity ward at Rockingham General Hospital.

They work alongside Dr Jose and Dr Ogwu to provide continuing maternity care from the very beginning of your pregnancy to the birth and 6 weeks beyond.

Endorsed midwives are able to offer more choice to women with their antenatal and postnatal care. The value within this setting is that the women get to know their Midwife and they can begin their valuable education from the very first visit, while the midwives learn about them and their family.
