Hi there, congratulations on your pregnancy. I am a midwife in Porirua and a lecturer for the midwifery degree programme. I therefore care for a small number of women per year. Offering a calm and positive approach, I provide full midwifery services to see you through this time. As birth is a normal life event for most, we usually care for women through birth at our local Kenepuru Maternity Unit or at home. In the event of a medical need Wellington Hospital is available too. I am also experienced in supporting women through elective caesarean sections. Postnatally you will have home visits with breastfeeding support. Overall my goal is to facilitate an enjoyable and empowering time for you.
