About Me

I am a LMC working from Botany Downs Birthing Unit. I look after women residing in the Botany and surrounding areas keen on having a natural birth, with an epidural being your last choice of pain relief. I deliver at Middlemore Hospital and Botany Downs Birthing unit. I have a great success rate supporting women keen on natural births but always with the view to a safe outcome. I have been a midwife for over 30 years and I have 3 grown up children. I am of Christian faith and offer an experienced, empathetic, caring, fun, direct and practical approach. I am originally from South Africa and have been in New Zealand since 2004. I work with 4 other midwives, we are known as "Midwives@Botany" and we offer you excellent care and support during your pregnancy, labour and postnatal period. Please check the areas I cover listed below. In Dec, I only have space for multips ( had a baby before) if due date is up to and incl 19th Dec.

How to Get Hold of Me

RETURNING CLIENTS: Please contact me directly even if it shows unavailable for the month you are due, either by mobile or email. I will either be able to accommodate you or help you find the best suited midwife in our group to care for you. NEW CLIENTS: Use enquiry form below to email me and let me know where you live, what number baby you are having (if you have had babies before please let me know what kind of births you had), what your due date is, as well as confirming that your preference is for a natural birth. Please also let me know your weight and height. If I haven't replied to you the same day (as midwives we work unusual hours and so I don't always get a chance to check my email) please call me on 021 978667, Mon to Fri only for enquiries, between 9am and 5pm. Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you!
