Congratulations on your pregnancy.
I love my job and am privileged to be a part of a woman and her family’s journey through pregnancy and birth. Being a mother of two children I understand the importance of family and how precious they are to us.
My philosophy is that pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood is a natural life event for women. In partnership with you I will endeavour to achieve the outcome of a safe and healthy pregnancy, birth and family, through shared knowledge, informed consent and a trusting relationship.
I provide care for up to 6 women a month and I will support your choice to birth at Te Papaioea Birthing Centre or at home. I provide full antenatal, labour, birth and up to 6 weeks postnatal midwifery care. Antenatal appointments are held at 20 Pirie Street, Palmerston North and postnatal visits are in your home.
My back up partner is Dawn Jacobs and we cover each other for alternate weekends off, to ensure we are re-energised to provide you with high quality, safe care.
