I have been a self-employed LMC midwife since 2002, working in the Franklin area (Awhitu/Waiuku/Otaua/Pukekohe/Tuakau/Glenbrook/Bombay/Drury/Pokeno). I give first preference to women in Waiuku as that is my home town. I am experienced with waterbirth and homebirth. (Please be aware that if there is no 2nd midwife available when you are in labour, you may have to come into the birthing unit for your birth). I have experience with providing antenatal and postnatal care for high risk pregnancies, including women who have previously had c-sections, or are having twins. I take midwifery students on a regular basis so unless you request otherwise, there may well be a student with me anytime. My antenatal clinic is at Pukekohe Maternity Unit on Friday between 9am and 6.30pm. I provide primary labour care at Pukekohe Maternity, and also at Middlemore in some circumstances. Please feel free to discuss your care options with me by email as first contact.
