About To me, birth is a natural function not a medical procedure, and women can do it themselves with support, rather than being told what and how to have their babies. I see the Midwife’s role as a partnership with the woman, to share information and knowledge and support the woman to make the best choices for herself. I love the involvement and being part of the family; the relationships we form are based on mutual respect and trust.

I believe in birth and know that women are powerful. I offer caring support and research based information to guide you in your decision making. Your choice of birthplace is an important decision and I can support you at home or at Wellington hospital. I provide antenatal visits from our room on The Terrace, or can arrange home visits if required. Postnatal visits are in your home. I look after 3-4 women a month in order to give you the best care.

About Hi, l began my nursing career in the UK in 1994 and quickly realised that l had a passion for midwifery. I have been qualified and registered since 2000. I moved to New Zealand with my husband and two children and began work soon after, as a midwife, at Wellington Hospital. My time in a tertiary unit has afforded me the opportunity to care for women along the low to high risk spectrum. The time is now right to become an LMC midwife as part of a team. I feel extremely fortunate to have found professional partners who share the same desire and need to promote a level of care that is quality driven and woman-centred. In essence, we as a team, strive to provide a safe, healthy and individualised pregnancy and birth and further support you and your family through the early postnatal experience. I very much look forward to hearing from you.

About I provide care to women who wish to birth either at home or at Paraparaumu Maternity, or Wellington Hospital. My visits are home based and I take on a maximum of 6 clients per month. I work with Nikau Midwives and back up is provided by any of the other Midwives within the group. I graduated in 1999 and have been working as a LMC with Nikau Midwives since then.

The group’s philosophy of keeping birth normal is integral to the care provided to all women, but we recognise that not all women can achieve this so care is individualised to each women’s needs and requirements
