Each centre has a coordinator who is available to assist with any queries or needs of visitors to our centre, as well as maintaining a welcoming environment for all who use the venues.
The Trust is made up of two midwives, a businessman, a childbirth educator and doula, and two consumers. To oversea the running of the two Resource Centres and Trust business, the board have elected a Manager to ensure our purpose/mission is met and that we continue to offer the most comprehensive service we are able to.
Mamaternity Charitable Trusts purpose/mission is to provide a service that meets women's maternity care and early parenting needs, through a consumer led initiative that works cooperatively with other service providers.
Our free services include fertility information, pregnancy testing, assistance with finding a midwife, maternity information and support, contraception advice, breast feeding support, maternity referrals, and parenting education sessions.
We also run free antenatal classes in both Feilding and Palmerston North facilitated by Certified Childbirth Educators or Midwives with teaching qualifications.
The Trust has a website with information and a regularly updated availability list of local Lead Maternity Care midwives and doctors.
