Birth Rites Midwife

About Me

Kia ora; congratulations on your pregnancy; what a delightful time ahead! If you're going to have a homebirth & wonder if I might be the right midwife for you, contact me; let's talk & see if we're a good match. I'm a granny midwife & have been involved with homebirths since before my daughter was born at home 34 years ago. It was a special delight to 'catch' her baby when he too was born at home last year! My main work now is as a student midwife educator, but I still provide midwifery care for a few women a year. I love being involved in the joy of a homebirth and the 'birth' of a new mother & a new family. My approach is to do relaxed visits in your home to allow time for you, your partner & whanau to have the knowledge & confidence in your own ability to labour, birth & breastfeed successfully. In labour and birth I help to hold a calm, still space so a woman's hormones (endorphins and oxytocin) work well. That may include the use of water for relaxation in labour, and/or for birth too.

How to Get Hold of Me

Email me preferably; or send me a text. I will reply as soon as I'm able and we can set up a time for us to meet and have an initial talk
