  • visitors during July open day

Our philosophy


We believe the well being of women and their families come first. Our philosophy of care is grounded in the belief that each woman’s labour and birth is unique, special and a celebratory occasion.


Rosie birth centre is run by experienced midwives and maternity support workers. They provide a midwifery-led service where actively labouring women receive one-to-one midwifery care that is always kind, safe and excellent. We believe that by supporting and facilitating an environment that is caring, calm, private and peaceful we enhance feelings of safety and security in labouring women. By creating this atmosphere and building trusting relationships with women and their birth partners, we are optimising conditions for natural childbirth to occur.


Service information


The new Rosie birth centre is designed to be used by all women who are receiving midwife-led care and who have enjoyed a pregnancy without any complications and who are expecting to have a normal birth.
