Kia ora, Ngā mihi nui and Congratulations.
I work with Birth Rite Midwives and partner with Kate Nicoll to work 7 days on call 7 days off call. I offer regular visits in our new clinic in Linwood with home visits offered later in pregnancy and after birth. I support women to birth at home, at Lincoln, Rangiora & St George's birthing units or in CHCH Women's Hospital if need be. I believe pregnancy and childbirth and parenting are significant life events and in the right environment a woman and whānau can come away empowered by the process. Every woman is different, so I will encourage and support you to make the decisions that are right for you and your whānau. However, Please note that I cannot offer you Epidural pain relief in labour and instead will encompass more natural methods of working with pain. You can expect the care I provide to be informative, individualised and respectful of your decisions an beliefs.
Wishing you all the best for the journey ahead
