Firstly, congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a registered midwife working in the Manurewa area with my two practice partners Maree Wilson and Sandy Stephenson. I have grown up in the South Auckland community and thoroughly enjoy working with our local women and families.I am passionate about working in partnership with women and their whanau during this sacred, sometimes challenging and cherished time in their lives. I enjoy working with women during pregnancy, labour and birth and the 6 week period following baby's arrival. I believe in providing women with the education, support and information that they require to make the best decisions for themselves and their tamariki. If specialist's care is required my practice partners and I work alongside the Obstetric team at Middlemore Hospital to provide the best care plan for you. I am enthusiastic about helping women to feel safe, understood and empowered through their pregnancy.
