About Us

Who are LMC Services

We are a  co-operative whose members are health professionals working in the field of maternity services.  Our focus is on supporting the health professionals to provide the best possible maternity care to women and helping women to access midwives, obstetricians and other health professionals as needed.  Also we actively seek opportunities for maternity and related services to be enhanced.

Our Name

Our name comes from our membership and the services they provide. All members, be they midwives or doctors, are Lead Maternity Carers (known as LMCs) who provide care during and immediately after pregnancy.


 We were originally formed as South Auckland Maternity Care Limited in 1996.  Initially there were only three midwife members who secured a contract for maternity service with the then Northern Regional Health Authority.

Over the years, we have grown to a national organisation with over 200 members.
