About Me

I believe that birth is a sacred journey and women who are supported to birth in a normal physiological way usually become happy, confident mothers. A natural birth can be very healing especially if you have had a previous traumatic experience. Sometimes women choose interventions, like epidurals and Elective Caesareans and I do my best to support you with your choices. Dads are vitally important and I commend Dave Owens for his work with Great Fathers! I support Attachment Theory and my role models are Michel Odent, Marianne Littlejohn and Ina May Gaskin. My favourite book is Three in a Bed by Deborah Jackson and my favourite quote is from Suzanne Arms: If we are to create a non-violent world where respect and kindness replace fear and hatred, we must begin with how we treat each other at the beginning of life. For that is where our deepest patterns are set. From these roots grow fear and alienation~or love and trust. Rainbow friendly. =o) My clinics are in Parakai and at MAMA Maternity in Sandringham.

How to Get Hold of Me

I have been an LMC midwife in NZ since 2003 and I have significant home, primary maternity unit and hospital birth experience. I trained in the US (Brooklyn, NY) and have lived in both Tonga and Cambodia. I can speak a little Tongan and some Khmer and I thoroughly enjoy providing care for women from a variety of cultural backgrounds. My midwifery partner, Irene Hogan, and I love working together. We have very similar midwifery and life philosophies. I invite you to have a look at my facebook page where you will find a link to my video "Born at Home: NZ Dads Advocate for Homebirth." I am happy to arrange a pre booking visit with you to see if we are a good "match." Keep in mind that you can always change midwives if you are not happy with your care. If you would like for me to be your midwife, I am happy to consider it even if you live outside the areas that I have indicated I cover... especially if you are wanting a homebirth.
