Information: Once you have confirmed you are pregnant the first thing you need to do is find an LMC (midwife). An LMC will be responsible for your care throughout your pregnancy, birth and up to six weeks after your baby is born. Not all LMC’s offer home birth, so if you are interested in a home birth ask your LMC if they provide this service. Please note GPs do not offer LMC maternity care in the Wairarapa. You can book the birthing pool on the link provided through Wairarapa Maternity.

Up to 60 babies die from Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (or ‘SUDI’) in New Zealand each year. This includes both explained and unexplained deaths. Common causes include suffocation by bedding or by an adult or child who is sleeping with the baby.

To protect your baby:

  • Make sure they sleep on their back (with their face up)
  • Make sure bedding and pillows are kept away from your baby’s face as they sleep
  • Make sure there are no gaps between the cot and their mattress
  • Don’t smoke – and make sure others don’t smoke around baby

It’s safest not to sleep in the same bed as your baby. Keep them in a cot, bassinette, wahakura or pepipod and sleep in the same room. Your midwife will check where you baby will sleep and give you advice when they visit.

For more information see the HealthEd website

Wairarapa DHB supports all pepe having their own sleep space and so offer pepi pods and wahakura to anyone that does not have a bassinette or cot, Maori, Pacifika, smokers or those that may choose to bed share. Your midwife can request this and it can be collected from the Wairarapa Maternity unit.
