Jane is a private midwife with over 20 years experience. You can visit Jane in her clinic at North Parramatta or organise a home visit.

Hi, I’m Jane Palmer and I’m a midwife dedicated to providing women and their families a continuity of care from conception to six weeks following birth. I believe mothers should have access to information and support to help them feel confident as they face the life-changing adventure of motherhood.

The Midwifery Clinic

Visit Jane in her newly renovated midwifery clinic at North Parramatta. Plenty of parking available on site.

Jane’s clinic is located at 5 Daking Street North Parramatta. While decorating Jane tried to create a space that looks and feels soft, calm and relaxing. The aim was for a comfortable space that felt more like a sanctuary rather than a clinical room. There is plenty of room for support people to be present during your visit. Toys are available for children. Feel free to explore Jane’s library of books covering lots of topics on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting.
