Hi I'm Edith.Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm a very optimistic, outgoing midwife. I have over 5 years experience both in the hospital and in the community. I encourage women to be fully informed in their pregnancy and childbirth, so decisions during this experience can be made with awareness and choice. I will advocate for you in regard to your choices. I will advise and guide you in this process and ideally it will mean you have a more satisfying birth experience.I care for women from all cultures and backgrounds. If you are having a normal pregnancy you can choose to birth at one of the primary birthing units in and around Christchurch or at home. If your pregnancy is no longer normal and requires medical input, I will remain your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC Midwife), but I will refer you to more specialist services and you may need to birth at Christchurch Women's Hospital. I look forward to sharing your birth journey with you, should you wish to choose me as your LMC Midwife.
