So you are expecting a baby? What exciting news! Midwifery is the best job in the world because we have the privilege of walking your journey with you. Who else has a job that is exciting, humbling, unpredictable and so rewarding all at the same time? Together, you and I can work in partnership to negotiate you through the twists and turns of pregnancy, birth and the six weeks after your baby has arrived. Before coming to Nelson I gained significant experience in South Auckland working as an LMC Midwife; I’m loving the change to rural Midwifery. Whilst my experience has given me a great grounding in complex pregnancy care, my belief is that pregnancy is a normal life event and that each woman’s experience is unique. This means that while aiming for as natural a journey as possible I have the skills and experience to support you through any surprises we encounter. Having grown up in a family of ten, being a mother and grandmother, I have a great sense of humour that proves very useful in Midwifery.
