Kaniwa Kupenga - Tamarama

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 have been supporting mamas and birthing babies for more than 10 years with whānau of Māori, Pasifika, European, Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. I am an experienced Midwife and support whanau to have home births, waterbirths and births at the maternity unit. I also support training midwifery students in our community and currently tutor the local Midwifery students part-time. For this reason, I have a small caseload and care for a few mama’s a month. My philosophy is to work in partnership with wāhine & whānau throughout their journey in an open, honest, safe and respectful manner.

How to Get Hold of Me

I am available to care for wāhine whom wish to birth at home or at the Gisborne Hospital.
