Maya Midwives Hawkes Bay NZ

Water Births

We are all very competent and confident with waterbirth. We fully encourage the use of water in labour and if women choose to birth in the water, we will support them providing it is a viable option.

Maya Midwives has a birthing pool for use at home. The primary birthing unit in Napier has a pool and Ata Rangi Hastings hospital has 2 pool rooms.

The pool is a purpose made inflatable indoor pool with very comfortable sides to lean against. It has a brand new disposable inner liner for each client so there is no risk of the pool being unclean. 

Please speak to us about water birthing, we would be happy to inform you of all aspects and answer any questions you may have. We would love to support you in your wishes and guide you through your viable options!
