Hi. I am Heba a registered midwife and a nurse. I was born and bred in Egypt, with Arabic being my mother tongue. I have lived & worked in New Zealand since 2004 & I am a New Zealand citizen.
I have long experience in women's health since 1991 overseas. I also worked at Women's Health Unit at Palmerston North Hospital as a nurse for many years. I maintain a low case load of 2-4 women / month & run a weekly clinic in Palmerston North. I also provide home visits during pregnancy as required. Being a low case-load midwife means you are likely to have a continuity of midwifery care/r throughout your pregnancy & beyond.
I work with you to achieve a positive childbirth experience regardless of the unique challenges that unfold during your maternity cycle. I have a certificate in Obstetric Acupuncture & I use several techniques to reduce the need for pain relief medications during child birth, including acupressure, acupuncture (free of charge), and water including but not limited to water birth.
