I have been a midwife since 1998, working as a Lead Maternity Carer in and around the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
I believe that most woman can give birth naturally, given support and guidance through this amazing process.
Active labour, or using water during the birth, often enables women to give birth with minimal intervention.This provides a natural platform to bond with and breastfeed the new baby, on the path to becoming a family.
There are times when the need for obstetric intervention is required, welcome and available.
I am experienced in supporting woman to achieve a vaginal birth after a Caeseran Section (VBAC).
You and your family are at the centre of my care and I always aim to facilitate a service according to your individual needs.
