Jade Hall is an Endorsed Midwife who decided to become a Midwife after having her own children and seeing firsthand the positive impact a Midwife can have on a woman’s journey into motherhood. She started her midwifery career as an enrolled nurse and then completed Registered Nursing and Masters of Midwifery. Jade undertook further study to become an Endorsed Midwife.
Jade has worked as a midwife in both public and private models of care. She currently also works at a public hospital rotating through all areas including antenatal clinic, postnatal ward, birth suite and maternal and fetal assessment unit (MAFAU). Prior to joining Western Obstetrics, Jade also worked in a private antenatal and postnatal clinic for 3 years as an endorsed midwife.
Jade enjoys helping women and their families through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum period and believes strongly in the importance of providing individualised woman-centred care.
In her spare time, Jade loves spending time with her husband and three kids. She has two very spoilt dogs - a Neapolitan Mastiff named Stanley and a Bull Arab named Bonnie. Jade also loves reading, yoga, meditation, snorkelling and hiking.
What led you to a career in midwifery?
After having my own children I personally saw the positive impact a midwife can have on a woman's journey into motherhood. This inspired me to become a midwife and to have the opportunity to provide the same high level of care that I received during my pregnancy and births.
What is your birth philosophy?
I strongly believe in the importance of midwives practicing safe, holistic, individualised, woman-centred care. I believe women should always have choices in their care and options. Advocating for the woman is an important part of the midwives role.
What is the most rewarding part of being a midwife?
I feel privileged to be involved in a woman's journey through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. I enjoy the continuity of care model and getting to know the woman and her partner. I love seeing the women bring back their babies for their postnatal checks. It is also very special helping a woman birth her baby.
What attracted you to be part of Western Obstetrics?
I have worked with Stuart for the past three years and have found him to be a caring and knowledgable GPO. Stuart values the role of the midwife and encourages midwives to be an active part of the woman's pregnancy and postnatal period.
