I was inspired to become a midwife by the awesome care my family and I received from my midwives when I had our three children. It showed me what a difference skilled support could make in people's lives. I then worked in birth and parenting education for ten years, helping others to have fulfilling birth experiences. I became a midwife to be able to provide even more care for growing families.
I love the journey with each family and whānau in their pregnancy, as they meet their babies and as they get the hang of parenting their new small person. Along the way I share information to help people make choices that feel right for them.
Birthing at home, the Paraparaumu or Kenepuru birth units or in Wellington Hospital are all options for women I work with. I am able to offer acupuncture for birth preparation (free of charge) and encourage women to use other complementary therapies they find helpful.
