About Me

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I’ve been a midwife for over 5 years in Counties Manukau and consider it a privilege to support women and families through the incredible experience of bringing a new baby into their lives. I believe that having a healthy and satisfying pregnancy, birth, and postnatal experience is of huge importance to all women and their babies. With a strong partnership between myself and the families I care for, I am there to provide guidance and support. My role is to provide the advice and expertise needed to inform women’s choices, to help them navigate the maternity system, and ensure that they and their babies remain safe throughout. I primarily support women to birth at home or in a birthing unit, including the option of water birth if desired. I believe pregnancy is a normal, healthy life stage and am passionate about helping women to birth without unnecessary interference. I work with Shannon MacCourt and you will be seen by both of us during your maternity experience.

How to Get Hold of Me

Please phone or text me on 021 872 274 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm) or use the email enquiry form below. If you could tell me your due date, what baby number this is for you, and where you plan to birth, that would be very helpful. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Note: If I’ve looked after you before, ignore the “availability” calendar and contact me anyway. I always try to accommodate return clients
