Catherine Rietveld

About Me

I have been a registered nurse/ registered midwife for 39 years. During this time I have worked in many different areas of maternal and child health. I am a midwife who is passionate about ensuring that all women and their families have the best possible access to maternal and child health services. I feel hugely privileged to share in the birth experiences of families. I believe in partnering with families as they prepare for parenthood, promoting and protecting their right to be in control of their lives. I bring my midwifery knowledge and skills to the family~midwife partnership and offer it as a gift. Within this partnership the woman and her family are encouraged to retain or regain control of their lives and health through shared decision making. I work in a practice of 9 fabulous midwives and take alternate weekends off. I am currently working part time and taking a modest case load. I really enjoy supporting families to birth at home and supporting women who require an elective caesarean section.
