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

My 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.

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.

Welcome to Manna Midwives.

We are a group of  independent West Auckland midwives who practice from a house situated in Te Atatu South.


While we each look after our own caseload of women, we also work collegially to support each other both professionally and personally in order to provide optimum care for all of our women.
