About Lindsay Smale, LMC

Lead Maternity Carer


Lindsay Smale, Bachelor of Science (Hons), Bachelor of Midwifery, Preceptorship for Midwives

Lindsay focuses on compassionate, enthusiastic and professional midwifery care. She came to midwifery with a background in biological sciences and has worked with other midwives in many different maternity settings. Lindsay practices as a preceptor; a midwife who is qualified to supervise midwifery students, and she is very committed to providing clients with information and care that is scientific and based on evidence.

Having a young son of her own Lindsay knows that pregnancy and motherhood, whether planned or not, can be both daunting and exhilarating, her aim is to provide holistic support for women and their families through this incredible journey. Lindsay recognises that each woman’s journey to childbirth is unique, and above all that this is your experience: your body, your baby, your choice. Her major focus is to support her clients by informing them of all the options available for their maternity care.

Lindsay also has experience of working with women in a diverse range of childbirth situations; including everything from low-intervention home births to providing maternity care that especially supports women with medical complications.

Lindsay’s favourite part of midwifery is seeing older siblings meeting and welcoming their new brother or sister into their family.

If you are looking for a midwife who is very approachable and happy to take the time to listen to what you need, discuss and answer your questions, and who respects the importance of your choice of childbirth experience, give Lindsay a call on 021 154 5682 to chat about your options.
