Midwife Check-in

Having a baby is a time of great transition. It can be one of the most precious experiences of a women’s life but it can also be a time when you need the most support.

Are you a new mum or mum-to-be in Queensland?

Yes! Why not register for our Midwife Check-in program – a free telephone based information and support service for pregnant women and new mums?

What do we do?

The Midwife Check-in offers women access to free, confidential, untimed telephone calls with a midwife regularly during pregnancy and after birth.

It gives women the opportunity to discuss any topic, such as expectations of parenthood, emotional health and wellbeing, or just to have a ‘listening ear’ at the other end of the phone.

We are also able to offer support to women who have been affected by a miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death.

What is the Midwife Check-in?

The Midwife Check-in service provides a caring and professional midwife who calls you on a regular basis, at a time that suits you. 

How does the Midwife Check-in work?

Once you sign up to the Midwife Check-in, a midwife will call you to see how things are going. If you want her to, the midwife will arrange a time to check-in with you on an ongoing basis. All check-in calls with our midwife are confidential, untimed and non-judgemental and you can chat about anything you like.

Popular topics women often check-in about include:

  • what to expect
  • how you are feeling
  • relationships
  • where you can get extra help and support
  • parenting; settling, crying, sleeping and feeding. 

What do I do next?

What women are saying about the Midwife Check-in

You don’t need to make an appointment - they call you and talk to you at home - you don’t have to travel anywhere or get in the car

You are called back by the same midwife each time

I like the idea of someone caring

If I had any concerns about myself or my baby - no matter how big or small - I could ask and put my mind at ease.
