About me

Sam Rhodes midwife

The life of a midwife

I became a midwife after I had my own three children, two in the UK and one here in NZ. In both places I received excellent midwifery care which built my passion for the midwifery profession. While pregnant I couldn’t read enough about the wonder of the female body and the strength of women during pregnancy and childbirth. I still love to learn and now I am passionate about teaching women as much as I can during the antenatal and postnatal period, to empower all women to make informed choices. I am very proud to receive positive feedback (see below) regarding the kindness and care I provide to women at this special time in their lives, and a common thread in my feedback is clear information sharing which results in tailored guidance and trust in the woman midwife partnership. In recent years I have supported women and families through Covid restrictions in a safe manner.


Sam was awesome, she always made sure I knew what was happening at all times and always made sure everything was how I wanted it


Sam was always there for me when I needed her and made sure I had everything I needed and was all set to go before leaving her care at 6 weeks


Very forthcoming with mental health information

Sam was amazing at explaining everything and talking through the different options at various stages of care. We always felt that we could ask questions too if we were unsure about anything

I wanted a more holistic birth than my first and Sam really listened to our concerns and ideal care and made a plan that would ensure we would get what we wanted

We had a rough journey with care for our first and ended up going private with an obstetrician. Sam really put the faith back into the midwifery model of healthcare for us
