Excited to hear you're having a baby!
I am a qualified Midwife and Nurse who trained in the UK with over a decade of midwifery experiences. I have had an exciting career working in both hospitals and the community, developing a wealth of skills in both New Zealand and the UK. Working as a Lead Maternity Carer Midwife is where I have found my passion. I feel very lucky to be part of such a fabulous profession.
I am a mum myself with a grown up, wonderful son, I have a family centred heart and a supportive and caring nature. My husband is my soulmate who supports me through my unpredictable lifestyle as a Midwife.
I provide midwifery cares across New Zealand's midwifery scope of practice, including primary care and primary birthing, home births and water births and, should your pregnancy require tertiary/obstetric support, I work in partnership with you, your family and the hospital team to ensure you and your baby receive safe, professional care in the appropriate setting.
I have a calm and friendly manner and practice professionally, holistically and woman centred ...... and I would feel privileged to walk side by side with you along this journey to help you grow your family.
Congratulations on your awesome news!
I registered as a nurse in 1999 and obtained my BSc Hons Midwifery degree in 2007, in the UK. Following our move to NZ in 2008 I initially worked as a core midwife at Christchurch Women s Hospital. I have been practising as an LMC in North Canterbury and the Northern Christchurch suburbs since 2009 and have supported many women and families throughout their journey into becoming a family.
You are about to commence YOUR journey into parenthood and choosing a midwife will be the 1st of many decisions that you are about to make.
I believe childbirth to be a normal life event and my aim is to empower you have a positive and enjoyable birth experience. My role is to walk alongside you and give you the information that you need to make informed decisions. Every journey is unique and requires a non judgemental and individualised approach. Yours and your baby's safety will always be my priority.
I am very passionate about my work and feel exceptionally privileged to be a part of this special time. I look forward to hearing from you!
