About Origins

Our approach to your care

Origins’ aim is to provide partnership care at the highest level, so that you can relax and enjoy your pregnancy. You will choose one of three specialists as your lead maternity carer (LMC). If your obstetrician is unavailable at any time, you will be seen by one of the other obstetricians within the practice. This system allows continuity of care - an Origins obstetrician will always be available to you, at any time of the day or night.

Your Origins care plan will include antenatal checks, screening and diagnostic tests, birth at National Women's Auckland City Hospital, private midwifery support during labour, anaesthetic and neonatal support, and postnatal midwifery care. From your first booking visit to your six-week postnatal check, we will be with you every step of the way.

Dr Nicholas Walker

"Being an obstetrician is a really privileged role, caring for the well-being of mothers and babies, and being alongside families at a very special time in their lives. My job is to ensure that pregnancy, labour and birth are as safe as possible, and I aim to do this with gentleness, care and respect. At Origins we believe it's really empowering for women to have choices in their birth experience, ranging from totally natural to planned caesarean section. And if something unexpected happens, we're there to make the right decision at the right time."

Dr Nick Walker was born in National Women's Hospital and grew up in Auckland. After graduating from the University of Auckland in 2001, he worked for several years in provincial New Zealand before undertaking specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology based at Wellington and Christchurch Women's hospitals. Nick returned to Auckland in 2011 to take up the positions of Chief Resident and staff specialist at National Women's Hospital. Nick has worked in private practice at Origins since 2013.

When not working, Nick enjoys reading, playing golf and piano, catching snapper, and spending time with his wife and their four young children.
