COVID Update
  • With the move to Level 4 there have been changes in clinic hours and open/closed status for some of our clinics. Visit our clinic directory to see if your usual clinic has reduced hours or is temporarily closed during Level 4.
  • We are also conscious that the Covid-19 Delta variant that is currently in New Zealand, can spread more easily than the original Covid-19 virus. To help our patients and staff reduce the spread of the Delta variant, White Cross and Local Doctors are setting up several clinics as either dedicated RED or GREEN clinics for the moment. Learn More

Mana 4 Mums

We provide additional support to expectant mothers who are Māori or Pasifika, under 22 years old and live in South Auckland. Find out more about our Mana 4 Mums programme below. 

Mana 4 Mums

We know that pregnancy and early parenthood can be a struggle for young women. We can help you by setting you up with one person who can coordinate the healthcare and wellbeing support you need during and after your pregnancy. Our Mana 4 Mums programme is an innovative project offering support from the time you test positive for pregnancy through to the early years of your child’s development.

As well as access to health services, your maternity coordinator can also help you access assistance you may need from social support services.

We also provide support with the following:

  • Booking a scan appointment
  • Finding a LMC or hospital midwife
  • Having a smoke-free and alcohol-free pregnancy
  • Parenting classes
  • Emotional health issues
  • Engaging with a social worker
  • Well-child checks 
  • Enrolling your baby with Plunket

Practical support from your maternity coordinator includes liaising with WINZ and Housing NZ on your behalf. We also work with agencies providing free services such as Pepi pods, car seats and health home checks.
