Congratulations on your pregnancy! I have just returned to practice, after taking some Maternity Leave with my second baby, and I am so excited to return to this role which I love.
I have been based in Queenstown since 2004 and have worked in this community as a midwife since 2013. I have also worked in a range of other midwifery settings from rural Kaikoura (2012) to Auckland City Hospital (2017).
I believe passionately in women receiving safe, supportive, informative, and unbiased care throughout their pregnancy and birth, to enable you and your partner to make confident, fully informed decisions for your labour/birth and into your new parenting experience.
Having recently had my own babies and faced some of the tough challenges and decisions unique to women who live in this region, I feel that I have a broader perspective to better provide thorough, one-on-one care. To ensure that you and your partner feel empowered and knowledgeable throughout the pregnancy, and ready to meet your new baby.
