Hi, my name is Belinda Marker and I am a midwife and a mother of four aged 16-23.
I am a strong believer in the strength and power of women, particularly during pregnancy and childbirth. My role enables me to work with women, encouraging and empowering them towards achieving a safe and healthy pregnancy, labour and birth and a supported transition to parenthood. I work with women who choose to birth at St George's, Lincoln, Rangiora or at home. As part of BIrth Rite Midwives, I work 7 days on on 7 days off, with my practice partner Jay Beaumont. This means you get to know both of us well, and also enables us to have a healthy work life balance. Jay and I do not offer epidural pain relief, instead focusing on natural methods of pain relief.
Given how important the midwifery partnership is, I am happy to meet with you first to see if we make the right team for your pregnancy journey.
