About Me

Becoming a mother for the first time is the biggest life change that you may ever experience. It is a deeply personal journey. I am a mother of two boys born in 1987 and 1999. The pregnancy and birth of my first began my passion for birth. I have been serving the childbirth community and attending births since 1989 as childbirth educator and doula. Since 1995 I have worked as a registered massage therapist. My interest and commitment to becoming formally trained as a midwife led me to relocate my family from Canada to New Zealand in 2003. In 2005, I completed the Midwifery Degree at Otago Polytechnic. Since then I have worked as a midwife in Canada, in a small rural birthing centre, and as a hospital midwife. I have been an LMC in Christchurch since 2009. I love supporting women for home births and water births. However, I strongly believe women will birth best where they are most comfortable which means I support women where ever this is. I have a clinic in Papanui.
