Congratulations on your awesome news!
Being a midwife is humbling, privileged and exciting and I’d be delighted to walk this amazing journey with you, providing continuity until 6 weeks after birth.
My woman-centred philosophy means each individual woman, baby and family are at the centre of all decisions - not just 'one size fits all'. I'm a huge supporter of keeping pregnancy and birth as normal and natural as possible, however my background means I'm also confident if things are/become complex. I’m down to earth and approachable and the main aim for me is building a trusting relationship with a focus on a safe outcome and a positive, empowering experience.
I’ve worked for over 3 years in big, busy hospitals in the UK and Auckland where I gained great experiences in all kinds of normal and complicated pregnancies and births. Since then I’ve been a core midwife at Nelson hospital for almost 3 years, which means I have great work relationships with doctors, midwives and other local professionals.
