The Charlotte Jean Team

Our small team of friendly and approachable qualified Nurses and Midwives are all enthusiastic about helping you and your family get off to the best start with your new baby at Charlotte Jean.

The Nurses and Midwives will provide care for you and your baby around the clock. Usually they work 12 hour shifts which allows them to get to know you and your family and provide more continuity to your care. The hospital enjoys a low staff to client ratio which allows the staff to be able to provide you with a high level of quality time and care. All your care is provided in your own private bedroom which allows you to be relaxed and enjoy getting to know your new baby.

During labour and birth, the Charlotte Jean staff member will provide assistance to your Lead Maternity Carer to care for you and your partner/whanau.

Postnatal Care
After your baby is born, and your LMC has done all the essential post birth checks, the Charlotte Jean staff will provide care to you, your partner/whanau and new baby.

The Charlotte Jean Maternity Hospital postnatal service is provided in a peaceful, relaxing and home like environment. Staff can help you to
