Our Story

How We Got Here

We see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of whānau as one of the most beautiful things about life. As Midwives, we are privileged to help women in Aotearoa make these experiences as positive as possible. Awhina Midwives have many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge to care for you and your pēpi. We are proud to offer care to women and their whānau across the Manawatu and immediate surrounds.
