I am a LMC working from Botany Downs Birthing Unit. I look after women residing in the Botany and surrounding areas keen on having a natural birth and who plan to use all natural pain relief methods first, with an epidural being your last choice of pain relief, and keen to deliver at Botany Downs Birthing unit or Middlemore Hospital. I have a great success rate supporting women keen on natural births but always with the view to a safe outcome. I have been a midwife for 29 years and I have 3 grown up children. I am of Christian faith and offer an experienced, empathetic, caring, fun and practical approach. I am originally from South Africa and have been in New Zealand since 2004. I work with 4 other midwives, we are known as "Midwives@Botany" and we offer you excellent care and support during your pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
