Kathy Ward Eligible Midwife

My Community Midwife

Kathy Ward is a proud mum and step mum of five (now adult) children and a doting Nanna to grandson, Cooper.

Qualifying as a Midwife in the UK, she gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of Midwifery care, in the home, in the community and in the hospital environment before emigrating to Australia in 2006.

Employed in both the public and private sector as a Clinical Midwife and Midwifery Educator, Kathy has further developed and extended her skills in the profession. After rigorous screening and further study Kathy successfully received notation as an Eligible Midwife, which means that she holds a Medicare provider number and PBS prescriber number. As a result of this Kathy’s patients can choose to receive midwifery care from her and Medicare rebates apply to my services.

Kathy is proud of her achievements and happy that she can offer more choice to women with their antenatal and postnatal care. Kathy works alongside obstetricians and paediatricians in Townsville as an experienced midwife and works in collaboration with any obstetrician by referral. She takes safety as a priority, working within her scope of practice and referring when appropriate within the multidisciplinary team.
