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.

Meet Our Team

Dr Phillip Beattie

Dr Phillip Beattie

"Women come to us because they want the reassurance of knowing that if things do not go as planned, someone they know and trust will be there to do whatever needs to be done to give them a good outcome - a healthy baby."

"Obstetric procedures are often required in your first pregnancy and are a lot less stressful when you know who's going to be doing them. Nobody likes to have a complete stranger walk in at the last minute."

"Our repeat business is very high - that's how we know we're providing a good service."

Dr Philip Beattie is married with two grown-up children. He was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and educated at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution and the medical school of Queen's University, Belfast.
