Ko Tainui me Mataatua toku waka,
Ko Pirongia toku maunga,
Ko Waipa toku awa,
Ko Rakaunui toku marae,
Ko Wahanui toku hapu,
Ko Ngati Maniapoto toku iwi.
No Kawhia ahau ki Paharakeke e noho ana.
Tena Koutou, Ko Crissy Coromandel ahau, I have lived in Hawke's Bay, Flaxmere for over 40 years. Married my Kahungunu sweetheart and we have eight children, aged from 25 years to three years of age.
I am a lead maternity carer midwife caring for Hapū Māmā from the time you know you are pregnant, in labour and after, up to six weeks after baby is born. He Wheako Aroha are preparation discussions for first time mothers, supporting and preparing mama for labour, birth, and after. I have a love and respect for all cultures because of the value I have for my own. Kaupapa Māori Birthing Custom is important so muka tie is a choice provided for its medicinal properties. Congratulations on your pregnancy, "Whaia te matauranga".....I am looking forward to being a part of your journey.
