Hapu Ora Midwives

About Me

Ko Hikurangi te maunga, ko Mata me Makatote nga awa, ko Te Aowera, Ruataupare, Te Aitanga A Mate me Rakairoa nga hapu. Ko Ngati Porou te iwi. Tena koe, I'm Kaniwa Kupenga-Tamarama. I am of Māori & European heritage. My husband and I have 4 children. I trained at AUT University & have recently moved to Gisborne with my family and look forward to settling into our community and working with whānau. I work as part of a team with Hapu Ora and provide a shared model of care that promotes focused maternity care to each stage of childbearing; pregnancy, emergencies/labours & postbirth cares. We work in partnership with wāhine & whānau throughout their journey by providing professional maternity cares in a safe, respectful, open & honest manner. We practice holistically + also run antenatal classes. We encourage whānau to get back to indigenous practices & use muka to tie the pito, ipu whenua to hold the whenua, karakia, oriori, karanga, mirimiri and rongoā.

How to Get Hold of Me

We are available to care for wāhine whom wish to birth at home or at the Gisborne Hospital. We run our hapu/pregnancy clinic from our office at 7 Ballance Street, Whataupoko, Gisborne. Please call us to make an appointment to meet us! 0800 111 023
