Danu Philosophy

Danu midwives are a new midwifery practice working with women and their whanau in the Christchurch region.

We feel privileged to share in the journey of women’s childbirth experiences; and believe pregnancy and childbirth to be normal life events.  For healthy women experiencing healthy pregnancies we believe that primary units or home are the safest places to birth.

Danu Midwives care about the safety of women and their babies and understand that at times specialist referrals or transfer during labour are required.  We also believe that sharing information enables women to make the right choices for her and her family and pride ourselves with being up to date with current evidence and research.

Just as we are supportive of women and their famililes, we too are supportive of each other, and provide backup midwifery care as necessary.
