Sensitive Midwifery is the midwifery division of the Sister Lilian Centre, an advice, support, advocacy and educational company serving mothers, fathers, babies, toddlers and growing families in South Africa and further afield. Sensitive Midwifery was conceived in 1995 and born 40 weeks later in 1996!

our logo’s symbolism

The protea makes a lasting impression on all who encounter it because it symbolises transformation, courage, daring and diversity.

Midwifery is not only sorely in need of transformation in South Africa and many other parts of the world, but it is the profession that has guided families in one of the most transformative times of their lives – pregnancy, birth and becoming parents. It takes courage for midwives and women to trust the natural processes of pregnancy, birth and motherhood and to do what is intuitively right in an era that values technology and medicalisation more than physiology. It requires daring to stand up for your profession, and to advocate for mothers, fathers and babies when all around you follow the path of least resistance. Every pregnancy, birth, mother, father and baby is unique – and therefore, Sensitive Midwifery will stand by you as you find the wisest ways to embrace diversity.

The colours of the protea have profound meaning too. White stands for purity, honesty and integrity; pink for femininity, motherly love and compassion; and green for harmony, nature and good fortune. What better symbolism could accompany a midwife in her hugely important work?

our vision

Sensitive Midwifery and the Sister Lilian Centre see a world that values midwifery and creates and raises children in a way which liberates the best in each and every individual.

our mission

To be leaders in improving midwifery, pregnancy, birth, parenting, health and family life, because families grow the next generation and shape the future of humankind.

our core values

Intuition. Integrity. Individuality. We consciously set out to make a difference, with impeccable service delivery and an inclusive approach in all we do.
