I was born and raised on the North Shore and moved onto the Coast over 10 years ago.I have been practicing midwifery for 15 years.I feel that birth is an extremely personal and powerful time and women need to feel confidant and supported with the choices they make. I am passionate about primary birthing -at home, at Warkworth Birthing Unit and at North Shore Hospital, I am happy to facilitate water births and/or support women who need a higher level of care with obstetric input. Birth can be natural and drug free but each women needs to make choices that are right for her, her family/whanau and her particular circumstance. Pregnancy ,Birth and the postnatal period is an amazing time in any woman's life but when you look back it's also a relatively short time. Becoming a parent and a family is something that lasts forever and I believe that if you lay good foundations at the beginning your journey will be richer. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
