Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am Kris, mum of 5 children aged 6 - 23 and I am also a registered midwife. I am based at Mums and Tums, Mt Maunganui. I work in close partnership with practice partner Michelle McAnulty. I provide antenatal, labour, birth and post-natal care for you and your baby, ensuring both of you remain healthy and happy.
I view pregnancy, labour as birth as a life changing but natural event and will support your labour and birth at Bethlehem birthing centre and also at Tauranga hospital.
I provide up to date research-based information for you to make your own choices for you and your baby. Information shared is in a non-biased sensitive manner and my role is to support and empower you to make you own choices. Our working relationship is based upon mutual respect and a professional friendship that can support your needs culturally, spiritually and emotionally in a safe non-judgmental way.
I view my involvement in your care as a privilege.
