Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a registered midwife working in Christchurch with the well-established practice Garden City Midwives. I have a daughter and a son (12yrs & 11yrs) and three very cool teenage step-daughters. I strive to provide my clients and their families with the best care possible ensuring care is individualised to meet specific needs. I believe in encouraging and supporting the right for women to make their own choices during this special journey, including women to birth wherever they feel most comfortable and safe. This could be at home, in one of the primary units, or at Christchurch Women’s Hospital. I run my clinic on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons at 545 Manchester Street. During the antenatal period I am also happy to provide home visits, however this depends on your home being reasonably close to mine in Aidanfield. Continuity of care continues up until your baby is 4-6 weeks old and all postnatal visits are in the woman’s home regardless of location.
