1st Choice Midwives

Sheryl Wright & Sue Holdom are experienced midwives who share a similar midwifery philosophy, in which women and their babies are 'the stars' and their role is providing holistic care, taking account of individual social, cultural, physical, spiritual and emotional needs.

Together they practice as 1st Choice Midwives. They each maintain their own caseloads with the benefits of being supported by each other when required, ensuring the women they work with have access to a complete midwifery service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All services are free and the entire North Waikato area is covered - from Hamilton North to Meremere and from Te Akau to Tahuna (including Ngaruawahia, Huntly and Te Kauwhata).

1st Choice Midwives have access to a variety of birthing facilities, including your own home, Birthcare Huntly and Waikato Women's Hospital.

1st Choice Midwives can offer you:

  • Pre-pregnancy discussion and information
  • Free confidential pregnancy testing
  • No-obligation initial visit
  • Information regarding choices for care
  • Education and information including a library of books and videos
  • Referral for testing relating to pregnancy (e.g. blood tests/ultrasound scanning)
