I am orginally from Ireland and moved to Gisborne 15 years ago. I trained as a nurse in Ireland working primarily in mental health. I now work as an LMC at Kowhai Midwives Gisborne. We are based at Hugh Gordons pharmacy on the corner of Mangapapa and Ormond Rd in Mangapapa. We provide holistic care for antenatal, labour and birth, and the postnatal period, providing homebirth and hospital based care. I am very fortunate to work with Briar Ferris who is also passionate about providing care that is centred around women and their whānau.
