Willemien Kool
The midwifery model of care that is followed in my practice allows me to provide continuity of care which helps to foster a deep trust between the midwife and a pregnant woman and her family. Antenatal visits are not only about checking vital signs and measuring the uterus. They are also filled with questions about life, activities, food, dreams, fears and storytelling. The mother, her family and I get to know each other well during these visits, building a strong relationship, allowing me to provide hands-on physical and emotional support to the mother and her family as she prepares to give birth, as well as during labour and the postnatal period.

Midwives Exclusive is a well-established midwifery practice in Pretoria.  We’ve been assisting families to give birth gently, safely and uniquely for the past 23 years and have great back up support from a number of obstetricians with whom we have a great relationship as well as various hospitals where we have birthing rights. We offer services throughout Pretoria with our base being in Rietondale where we also have a very quaint birthing house for those who want a home from home experience. We also do homebirths as well as hospital births for those who prefer. Midwives Exclusive has grown from a one midwife practice to a solid 5 fabulous midwife practice where we offer one on one care closely followed with a team approach ensuring you will never be left in a situation where your midwife is too busy with another mom, exhausted or on her weekend off when you need her most. We are dedicated to ensuring all woman know their birthing rights and options when giving birth and have freedom of choice to decide. Those who choose us to follow their pregnancy, birth and parenting journey with will be receive “exclusive”  midwife led care. We feel very strongly about growing midwifery and passing on the very precious calling of midwifery to younger midwives to continue allowing all woman choosing midwife led care to birth safely and compassionately.

Lilo Mthembu
“Natural labour and birthing is mind blowing. Empowering and guiding a mom towards the natural process of holding her baby in her arms is fulfilling. When I hear that first cry and I see the look on mom and dad’s face, that special moment, is what keeps my passion alive… I love my job”

My philosophy is Enjoy your pregnancy, be prepared, know your options, know what to expect, know what to do when things do not go according to plan. Have a birth plan that is flexible and not cast in stone. So that when the plan has to change, due to unforeseen events, the birth can still remain a beautiful birth, with an empowered mom, who followed her body’s ability and did all she could to have an experience of a lifetime.

Anneri du Plessis
Life begins at conception and the journey from inside to outside the womb is very important for a baby. I strive to equip and empower women to discover and trust their body’s original design in pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding. Holistic, individualized and evidence-based midwifery care can gently and safely guide women into confident motherhood. By following the body’s natural way with physiological and instinctive birth, women are more likely to have a positive birth experience. All women deserve a caring and knowledgeable midwife in pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Colleen Pedersen
When I trained as a midwife many years ago, I was absolutely enthralled by the miracle, the power and the beauty of birth. On a personal level, giving birth to my own four children was a most inspiring experience for me as a woman. It felt as if I was doing what I was born to do. I had such a sense of achievement and I look back on these births as real highlights in my life. This brought about a strong desire in me to see other women experience birth in this way. I am working on purchasing a property to develop as a birth home. It’s a non profit company where midwives and related professions will be able to work from.
