Midwife Shortage

Many of you will be aware that there is a national and local shortage of LMC’s. This may mean that you have some pregnant patients who are struggling to find antenatal care.

The DHB has put out a response process for these patients (click here to view).

The contact midwife at the DHB is Esther Mackay- phone 557 5768 or email She is happy to be contacted with the patients name and details and she will find a solution.

The DHB can provide antenatal care but this will be a team approach rather than one designated midwife. You can also send an e-Referral to the antenatal clinic via BPAC highlighting that it is for Esther’s attention.
