Charisma Midwifery Collective
I am a registered midwife based in Pukekohe and I love my work! I enjoy developing strong relationships with women and their families to enhance their pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience. Sharing information is a big part of what I do, so you gain confidence in yourself and the process. I strongly believe that pregnancy and birth are normal life events and as such I offer primary care to women with the same philosophy. I book women who intend to have their baby either at Pukekohe Maternity Unit or at home. I am also available for postnatal-only care. I work in a collective of like-minded, experienced midwives, and we support each other to ensure regular time off so we can always provide you with safe midwifery care. One of us is always available to answer your calls, 24/7. We provide continuity-of-caregiver throughout your antenatal, birth and postnatal periods, and make sure you meet your key back-up midwife antenatally.
How to Get Hold of Me
Feel free to contact me on 0212300616 any time Tuesday - Saturday during the hours of 9am-5pm for an initial contact. We can talk through your options and arrange for a first meeting. Alternatively, you can send me an email through this site and I will call you as soon as practical. Every week the midwives in our collective have 48 hours off-call, when our backup is available for urgent care/birthing. My regular time off is 6pm Saturday until 6pm Monday. I encourage you to register with me early in your pregnancy. Our first face-to-face "booking visit" will be scheduled for around 10 weeks gestation, usually at my clinic at Pukekohe Maternity Unit. Partners/support people are most welcome at any/every visit. Are you looking for postnatal-only care (due to obstetrican-based antenatal/birth care) - I am happy to provide this - please call to arrange. Our midwifery collective operates a Facebook page - follow us by liking "Charisma Midwifery Collective". I look forward to talking to you soon!
