Congratulations! I am a Registered midwife living and working in the Rotorua district, from a farming background. I have adult children and a supportive partner and feel privileged to be a part of this special time in your life. Pregnancy and the birth of a baby are life changing experiences. There are lots of new, exciting and challenging moments for women and families during this time. I will provide information and educational resources for you to make informed and clinically safe choices and decisions throughout your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal period. This may sometimes mean referral or a second opinion. I will provide quality care so that you and your baby's health are a priority at all times.
