Hi there, congratulations on your pregnancy!
I'm a midwife in the Whanganui region and have lived here for 15 years, however I am originally from England.
I became a midwife due to my passion surrounding the special partnership between women and midwives and also my strong belief in a woman's ability to make, grow, birth and nurture her baby.
I believe that no two women's journey's are the same and so I offer individualised care based on your wants and needs during your maternity journey.
I take a small caseload of women per month and I provide continuity of care from early pregnancy through to six weeks after the birth of your baby (or babies!).
I provide antenatal care in our practice's clinic rooms and offer home visits.
As for labour and birth, I provide labour and birth care either at your home or at Whanganui Hospital. I also support all birth choices, including water birth and VBACs.
My practice partners are Jemma Roy, Angelique Tucker and Annie Smith under the Nest Midwifery Care.
