Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a registered midwife based at Botany Maternity Unit providing care to women in the East/South Auckland region. I have two school aged kids and absolute love being a mum. As a midwife, I believe birth to be a normal life event and enjoy supporting & empowering women who feel the same and want to try for a natural birth. My role is to work alongside you and your family through the pregnancy, birth and 6 weeks following your birth, whilst ensuring the health of you and your baby at all times. Some women may require additional support therefore I work in collaboration with other health professionals including obstetricians. I will provide support and education to promote informed decision-making throughout your journey to parenthood, ensuring you make choices that are best for you and your family. I work with an incredible team of midwives that provide back-up care when I am unavailable. Once again congratulations and I look forward to hearing from you.
