Kia ora, and congratulations on your pregnancy. My name is Deidre (DJ) and I am married with 4 children. When I am not running the children around with their afterschool activities I am usually playing touch, squash or netball or spending time with my friends and family.
I decided to become a midwife as my husband and I have 4 children and during those pregnancies and births I had some incredible highs and some incredible lows but throughout all the highs and lows, I had some pretty amazing midwives that inspired me to use my experiences to help and empower women and their whānau to make their experience as close to their expectations as possible.
As a midwife it is my job to walk beside you through this journey, making a care plan that suits your needs and ensures the safety of you and your baby. I will encourage and support you in your decisions to help lead you to a positive outcome for you and your family.
