Congratulations. I can still remember the first time I held my daughter in my arms, the intense love I felt for her. She is a grown woman now but the experience and joy of birthing her is still very much with me. I support women to birth naturally, surrounded by family and friends in a calm and positive atmosphere. I encourage the use of water for labour and birthing because I know how calming and relaxing warm water can be, but if water isn't your choice then I am keen to encourage active positions and mobilisation to achieve a natural birth. If you have high risks I will support you to achieve the birthing experience safe for you. My Clinic is on Monday. 274 Te Atatu Rd. Te Atatu South. I support birthing at Waitakere Hospital. I also birth at Birthcare Parnell for low risk women who have birthed naturally already. Please check my web site www.diannesquire.co.nz or mannamidwives.co.nz for personal testimonials.
