Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am a very experienced midwife having been a rural LMC midwife since 2001 in Mid Canterbury and "catching" well over 1000 babies.
I have recently moved to the beautiful Central Otago region where I am about to finish my part time work in Charlotte Jean Maternity Hospital to take up rural LMC midwifery which I have 17 years experience in.
I provide care for a small number of women (as recommended by the NZ College of Midwives). This ensures you receive a high standard of midwifery care.
For low risk women I facilitate you to birth in a primary unit or in your own home (free birthpool available) and for higher risk women at a tertiary hospital.
My depth of experience and knowledge includes a recent 3 day hypnobirthing course and an Advanced Lifesaving Support in Obstetrics course in Melbourne.
Pregnancy appointments are at home for Wanaka and Alexandra women, in clinic for Cromwell and Queenstown women. Families/whānau/support people welcome.
