Kindred is developing, the finishing touches have been completed, and our reception area truly now is a place to relax. The comfortable surrounds reflecting the warm, open and personalised attention you will receive in our commitment to provide exceptional care.
We are so privileged to nurture, share, empower and give birth in this, a developed country. The ingenuity of humankind to adapt and address, in adversity, life threatening circumstances, never ceases to amaze. Please take a moment to be thankful for all those genuine people that work at keeping us safe, not only in the birthing context but in all ways that make our lives safer without harming the rich diverse tapestry of our freedoms.
