Returns Policy

Returns

♦ We want you to love what you buy from us, therefore if you change your mind about an item purchased or it is damaged or faulty simply complete the Product Return Form for replacement, refund or exchange. Returned items need to be couriered to Howick Midwife Ltd, 23 Westview Court, Somerville, Auckland 2014. (Note: See below re: returns for Unimom breast pumps/parts/storage)

 

♦ Returns need to be in their original condition including all protective packaging and returned up to 30days of you having purchased the goods along with your receipt. We cannot accept any goods that have been worn, used, or had their labels removed.

 

♦ In the instance of damage or fault, we will replace the items, or if you prefer, refund the freight and purchase price. If you change your mind about an item we are happy to refund or exchange the product for you, but cannot refund freight costs in these instances (see point 3 below).

 

♦ Refunds will be processed back to the original payment method within 7 working days of us receiving the return.

 

♦ If someone has sent you a gift from Howick Midwife Ltd but it wasn’t what you wanted, then you can return it in exchange for a credit note/voucher, which you can use to redeem on our web site, as long as it falls within our returns policy requirements.

 

Points to note:

1)    We cannot accept returns where the damage or fault is a result of something you did.

 

2)    Please note no returns or refunds on DVD's & Books which are considered a firm sale.

 

3)    We often subsidise the cost of the freight. If you have changed your mind and decide to return the item, then the full cost of the freight will be retained by Howick Midwife Ltd i.e. if the item cost us $10 to ship and we have already charged you $6 (for orders under $100) then we will retain the extra $4 shipping expense when refunding you. This also applies where the order was over $100 and the shipping was fully subsidised, if the item is returned we will retain the shipping cost to us before processing the refund. If in any doubt please contact us at nimisha@howickmidwife.com or  sales@howickmidwife.com as we will be more than happy to assist you in this instance. This only relates to change of mind purchases and in no way relates to damaged or faulty goods.

 

4) We are unable to accept responsibility for returns that are sent by non-traceable postage methods and are not received by us. Understandably, without the items we cannot issue an exchange or refund.

 

5) Exchanged items can only be dispatched after the returned goods have been received in accordance with the returns policy.  Please be aware that you will incur an additional freight charge for the delivery of the replacement item (unless the item was faulty, damaged, or sent to you in error).

 

If an item is returned to Howick Midwife Ltd for a refund or exchange BUT does not meet our returns criteria, a refund or exchange cannot be processed and we will return the item to you. After 30 days, the item is yours to keep so we strongly advise all customers to check goods thoroughly upon delivery.
