In New Zealand every pregnant woman is expected to choose a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) who will monitor and support them through their pregnancy, during labour and childbirth, and for 4–6 weeks after the birth.
A midwife, doctor (GP) obstetrician or a team of hospital-based midwives can be an LMC.
New Zealand College of Midwives NZCOM is the professional association for midwives. Check out their website where you can find midwives available in your area: www.findyourmidwife.co.nz/
