About Me

Congratulations on your pregnancy, this is such an exciting time for you. I am a Midwife who believes that pregnancy and childbirth are a normal part of a woman's life cycle, and I work to support women to stay as healthy as possible so that they can enjoy a straightforward experience. In my 15 years as an LMC Midwife I have built a trusted network of natural therapies practitioners, and if appropriate I will refer to these colleagues to enhance your journey. Please note that these practitioners charge for their services. Many of the pregnant women I care for also engage in Hypnobirthing education to prepare for their labour and birth experience. As an experienced Midwife I am also well versed in recognising when a woman’s journey moves away from the normal, and I will refer as appropriate to the Obstetric team at Auckland Hospital so that we can work collaboratively towards a healthy and safe outcome.

How to Get Hold of Me

I have a special interest in working with women who are planning to birth at Parnell Birthcare. My preference is to book women who are committed to the normal birth pathway. If you are planning to birth in the hospital setting, I will work with you to plan a natural active birth that is preferably drug free, and if you wish, a waterbirth. Please contact me if you would like to make a booking appointment. If you would like to get a feel for whether I am going to be the right Midwife for you, please text and we can make a time for a phone conversation. If you are a returning client and your due month shows as unavailable on my calendar, please be in touch anyway so we can sort something out for you! You can contact me by email, or by phone. Please only make contact by phone Mon-Fri, 9.00am-5.00pm. If I do not answer my phone could you please text me your details - name, due date, the number of babies you have had and where you live. I will return your message asap
