Sue den Hartog 


Congratulations on your pregnancy  - one of the most exciting, scary, and fulfilling  journeys  of your life.

SueMy name is Sue den Hartog. I trained as a registered nurse, first working in Cardiothoracic areas at Greenlane in 1976, then as a midwife in 1982 through AUT Auckland. 

I am married to my lovely husband and we have 5 amazing children and 2 gorgeous grandchildren. My social interests are painting, crafts and netball.

I am one of the Christian Midwives in the practice but I am happy to look after any women needing a midwife regardless of their beliefs.

I really enjoy my job as a midwife and I bring a wealth of experience firstly as a Mum and secondly as an experienced midwife. I have worked in both the hospital and the community and helped establish Manna Midwives 7 years ago.

Giving birth is one of the most special times in a woman’s life. What I most enjoy is walking with women through their journey to being a Mum. I love those moments when a Mum and Dad meet their baby for the first time. Each one is special and a moment to be cherished.
 
Pregnancy labour and birth are a natural process for most women and I encourage you to keep it as natural as possible.  However, I also
 appreciate that plan A may become plan E or F and I will support women who want a natural birth, waterbirth, pain relief, epidural or a caesarean (elective or emergency).

I enjoy working with women who have previously had problems breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can be hard for some women and I have a wealth of expertise in this area.

I mostly birth women at Waitakere Hospital but also have  access at Auckland, North Shore and Birthcare. If you are transferred to any of these hospitals I will continue to look after you and maintain continuity of care.

I work in a practice with 4 other midwives (Julie, Dianne, Aileen and Deidre).  I work more closely with Aileen and Deidre for back up.

As I value quality care I usually take only 4 or 5 women per month so I have enough time to give each woman the care they deserve.
