My name is Sanaz Khodaverdian I migrated to New Zealand in 2002. I completed my midwifery training at Auckland University of Technology. Being a midwife is a very special career and I consider it a privilege working with women.
The uniqueness of maternity service in New Zealand made me more passionate to become a midwife and to offer continuity of care to women. I enjoy the satisfaction that comes from walking the journey to motherhood with a woman and her family and feel that being in a midwifery practice assists this process in the best possible way.
I love supporting women through normal labour and birth, always referring them to the appropriate professional necessary. My aim is to help every woman have a fulfilling childbirth experience that make her feel powerful in whatever way that is meaningful to the woman and her family. I understand how difficult & stressful pregnancy can be for those migrant mothers and offer my full support to minimise these stressors. I speak English and Persian fluently.
