I am a self employed midwife working in the Kumeu/Helensville area and I take a relatively small, local caseload. I have a strong belief in birth as a normal process and work with women to protect and promote normal birth. However the journey of pregnancy, birth and parenting can be unpredictable and my job is to provide you with up to date information, support and, if necessary, intervention and input from other specialist services. I will be a strong advocate for you to help achieve the best outcome for you and your baby. You can choose to birth at home, Helensville Birthing Centre or Waitakere Hospital. I have a background of working as a registered nurse for 20 years before training as a midwife. I live in Kumeu and I am a mother of 3 gorgeous school/university age children.
