Hi, I'm Katie, I trained as a midwife in Ireland, where I am from, and I've lived in New Zealand for the past four and a half years, working in Hutt and Wellington hospitals. I am experienced caring for women in both normal and complex pregnancies and births. I have a philosophy of supporting women and their families to achieve the best possible outcomes, through supporting their choices and providing excellent midwifery care regardless of circumstances. I am comfortable and experienced in supporting women in conjunction with the obstetric teams in Wellington Hospital as needed.
I am working with a fantastic group of midwives who have a similar philosophy to bring you a safe, sustainable model of care - we have an on call system for labour and urgent calls so that you and your baby always have a well-rested midwife to provide safe hands. You will get the chance to meet the other members of the team during your pregnancy.
I look forward to meeting you and your family at this exciting and life-changing time.
