Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a mother of three boys, living in Christchurch. I work in a practice of four midwives. We specialise in home and water birth but recognise the importance of ensuring that each woman has a choice in her planned place of birth. I provide antenatal care from a clinic in Bryndwr but can provide home visits antenatally if you live close to my home in Somerfield. I support women to birth at home, in the primary unit and, at Christchurch Women's Hospital. Postnatal care is provided in your own home throughout the postnatal period, in addition to the inpatient visits if you are staying at a unit immediately following the birth of your baby.
I believe that my role as your midwife is to ensure that you are fully informed during this significant period in your life, to support you throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth and, the postnatal period. By ensuring that you have all of the relevant information, you are able to make informed choices about your care.
