Congratulations on your pregnancy! Having three children myself, I feel very privileged in my role of helping women to become mothers. I truly value journeying with women and their families during such an important time in their lives. I believe in birth as a natural process and am passionate about supporting women to achieve normal physiological births. However I am also well trained to recognise complications when they occur and consult specialist services accordingly. I attend births at North Shore Hospital and Home, including waterbirths and VBACs. At Hauraki Midwives I work closely with a group of like-minded midwives who offer the same philosophy of naturally-focused care. I take a small caseload each month to allow to me to provide individualised care whilst also spending time with my family.
