Calendar Colour Key
Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am a NZ-trained midwife, long-term Queenstown local and mother of one active teenager who was born in Queenstown. It has been my privilege to support women in Queenstown’s diverse community. I am originally from Japan and spent some time in Brazil before moving to Queenstown, then married to my NZ-born husband. I respect each woman’s unique cultural background. If this would be your first pregnancy or you came from another country, you may be unfamiliar with NZ Maternity services. I am pleased to help answer any questions you may have. My aim is to help you enjoy, give you confidence and feel safe during pregnancy, childbirth and the early postnatal period. I look forward to supporting you and your family to achieve a positive birth experience. (Portuguese) Parabéns pela sua gravidez. Eu morei em Campinas, São Paulo por um ano. Adorei a experiência e a cultura. Entendo português e falo um pouco.(日本語) お気軽にお問合せ下さい
How to Get Hold of Me
Please contact me via the following enquiry form or email to email@example.com. Please include your full name, contact number, estimated due date and the suburb you live in. Alternatively, I am available on my mobile, 022 084 2339, Mon-Fri, 09:00-17:00. I work alongside Keri Mapperson in our group. We alternate weekends off and offer 'continuity of care' to our women. I also work closely with other local midwives and my colleagues in Invercargill / Dunedin to support each other as needed. If any complication arises during your pregnancy or you have any pre-existing medical conditions, I refer you to the Obstetric team in Invercargill/Dunedin and work collaboratively with the Specialist team to support you during your special journey.
