Marilyn Sher and Veronica Park have many years of experience in midwifery. They are practical and down to earth midwives who endeavour to offer you a birth experience, the way you always imagined it to be.
How Midwives Work
It is suggested that you see your doctor up until 22 weeks. In this time the necessary tests are done and the 20 week scan. After that you come and see us and we get to know each other.

Visits are done:
We allow you to go to 42 weeks before doing induction. A doctor's visit is recommended at 36 weeks to meet covering gynecologist to assess baby's development.
You are given half hourly appointments to enable us to discuss any questions you might have and how you would like your birth to happen.
Attendance at birth
When you think or know that you are in labour, please contact Marilyn or Veronica. We will keep in regular telephonic contact with you, until you are ready to go to the hospital. This usually occurs when contractions are more or less 5-10 minutes apart. We then meet you at the hospital and stay with you for your labour, do the birth and settle you post delivery more or less 1 hour.
Home visits are done for more or less 2 days after delivery to assess you and your baby's wellbeing.
Marilyn and Veronica are partners and either one of us will assist you at your birth.
