About Me

I am away from 27 Nov-2 Jan & unable to answer email. "The way a woman gives birth matters. It can affect the whole of the rest of her life." I am an experienced midwife and my particular emphasis is on education to support women towards an empowering journey. My intention is to provide you with safe midwifery care based on researched information to help you make decisions that are best for you & your baby. I believe every woman & family are unique & I tailor my midwifery care and information to meet your individual needs. I think pregnancy & birth for most women are normal processes. They are also life changing events that many women & families find challenging. My midwifery care includes family support & education to prepare & help families through these life changes. I offer home & hospital births. I have an access agreement at Balclutha primary birthing unit for women interested in a primary birth experience & happily offer water birth in all settings. I hold a post-grad certificate in midwifery.

How to Get Hold of Me
