About Me

First of all, Congratulations!! You are embarking on the exciting journey of welcoming a new member to your family. I believe pregnancy and birth are remarkable but natural life events, and I feel privileged to walk alongside women on their journey. As a mother of 3, having started in my teens and through into my 30s I understand that different phases of life require different approaches to care. I enjoy supporting woman of all ages and walks of life to have a positive experience through pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. I strongly believe you shouldn’t have to “leave your dignity at the door” when giving birth. It is my role as your LMC to help you maintain your dignity. I do this by working in partnership with you, providing you with respectful, supportive and sensitive care. Some inhibitions may get thrown to the wind, but not your dignity.

How to Get Hold of Me

The best way to contact me is by text or call between 9am and 5pm weekdays, 022 191 4940. Alternatively you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page and I will get back to you as soon as I can. My fantastic midwifery partner is Kim Murray, we support each other to offer you 24hr urgent or labour care. We provide one another with regular time off, to ensure safe practice and to gain some work / life balance. I provide care to women in Hamilton city, antenatal appointments are held in my clinic at 384 Peachgrove Road. For clients within Hamilton who are wishing to have a homebirth, antenatal appointments can be completed in your home if you prefer.
