Keli van Gerwen
Hi I’m Keli, congratulations on your pregnancy! I live in Dunedin with John, our 8 year old son Jana and sweet little Amaya (2). From September I will be working with Charlie Ferris (look her up!) as a pair. We would care for you together and have alternate time off so that one of us is always on call for you. You would meet us both as equally as possible over your pregnancy. We offer free pregnancy testing, care during pregnancy, birth and until your baby is 6 weeks old. We provide care for home or hospital births and offer birth at the beautiful primary unit in Balclutha- well worth the short drive from Dunedin! We have experience supporting women wanting to birth in water. Women birth well when they feel safe and confident and our goal is to facilitate this. We are motivated to support women and their whānau in making informed decisions that are meaningful for them. If complications arise we will work with medical teams to provide the extra care you need.
How to Get Hold of Me
I would love to hear from you! Phone or text me on 0279310873. Leave a message if I don't pick up and I will try to call you back the same day. Email is also fine for contacting me and I check them each evening.
