Rachael Thomas

Congrats! I am deeply passionate about midwifery and supporting women to reach their expectations and aspirations during antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal periods.

I am grounded in a belief that birth is a normal physiological event, and that this should be an intuitive and empowering experience for women and their whānau.

I endeavour to take an organic, holistic, approach to midwifery care and acknowledge each woman’s cultural, spiritual and emotional needs.

I advocate for informed decision making and consent and feel that positive outcomes can be achieved through shared knowledge, mutual respect and equality within the midwifery partnership.

I am supported by my wonderful midwifery partner, Kirstin Rouse, who practises with a similar philosophy and provides midwifery care when I am off-call. We also have a birth pool available for hire, for those in our care planning to home-birth.

Please feel free to send me an email: rachaelthomasmidwife@gmail.com or contact me on 021-1996351 (strictly 9-5 mon-fri). REPEAT CLIENTS: Please contact me regardless of my availability on here I have a clinic on Mondays/Thursday from 9am-3pm at the River Ridge East Birth Centre Hub.
