I'm Jodie – I immigrated to New Zealand in 2011 with my husband and we now have 4 children. I trained in England and worked there briefly. Since coming to New Zealand I have worked in Auckland, Taranaki, and Taihape before settling here in Taranaki. I am passionate about partnership with women, supporting informed decision making, and being able to get to know the woman and her family/whānau, following through their journey of childbirth. I work at Partners in Pregnancy in New Plymouth, I have clinics 3 days at week and provide postnatal visits at home. I support homebirth and birthing at Taranaki Base Hospital.
I am currently on maternity leave but will be returning in December, my back-ups at Partners in Pregnancy are taking clients for when I return.
