Kia ora and congratulations on your pregnancy.
My name is Shaye Laird. I am a registered midwife practicing in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.
As a midwife I specialise in providing care for normal pregnancy, labour, birth. I also provide care for you and your new baby up to 5 weeks after your baby is born. I am able to care for pregnancies, labour and births alongside obstetricians when this is required. As a midwife practicing in New Zealand I work under the midwifery scope of practice, the midwifery standards of practice and the registered midwives competencies.
I view pregnancy and birth as normal life events and feel privileged to be able to share this special time with women and their families.
My aim as your midwife is to build a trusting partnership with you and work alongside you and your family to provide a service which is supportive, safe and respectful.
