Hilary Karry

I am a midwife based in the Adelaide Hills, providing my clients with private midwifery services across Adelaide. I offer personalised, compassionate, evidence-based midwifery care to women and their families. My core philosophy as a midwife is the empowerment of women and their families in their journey through pregnancy and into parenthood. I am endorsed to prescribe, order diagnostics and ultrasounds, as well as access Medicare rebates, all in the comfort of your home.

What is a midwife?

"The midwife is recognised as a responsible and accountable professional who works in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care and advice during pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period, to conduct births on the midwife’s own responsibility and to provide care for the newborn and the infant. This care includes preventative measures, the promotion of normal birth, the detection of complications in mother and child, the accessing of medical care or other appropriate assistance and the carrying out of emergency measures. The midwife has an important task in health counselling and education, not only for the woman, but also within the family and the community. This work should involve antenatal education and preparation for parenthood and may extend to women’s health, sexual or reproductive health and child care."
