Lou McRae Shepherd

About Me

Hi my name is Lou, I am a mum of four awesome kids, two of my own and 2 step kids. 7 years ago I decided to change careers to become a midwife, I have greatly enjoyed this change and I truly feel blessed to be part of your amazing journeys. My midwifery philosophy is to simply provide quality care, and be “with women” throughout their pregnancy, birth and postnatally. I believe that pregnancy and birth are a normal part of our life cycle and I honour this journey, and am committed to this natural philosophy of care. The clients that choose me as their midwife will have a similar philosophy, and a plan in place to avoid any unnecessary medical interventions and the possible risks associated, in the effort to keep their babies and themselves safe. I support home births and primary unit births in Kaitaia, But in the case of needing secondary care, I will need to transfer to Whangarei's secondary unit, I'm happy to continue postnatal care once you're back in the Far North.

How to Get Hold of Me

Please contact me on 027 522 5305. I look forward to answering any questions you may have.
