Hi, I'm Katie, I trained as a midwife in Ireland, where I am from, and I've lived in New Zealand for the past four and a half years, working in Hutt and Wellington hospitals. I am experienced caring for women in both normal and complex pregnancies and births. I have a philosophy of supporting women and their families to achieve the best possible outcomes, through supporting their choices and providing excellent midwifery care regardless of circumstances. I am comfortable and experienced in supporting women in conjunction with the obstetric teams in Wellington Hospital as needed.

I am working with a fantastic group of midwives who have a similar philosophy to bring you a safe, sustainable model of care - we have an on call system for labour and urgent calls so that you and your baby always have a well-rested midwife to provide safe hands. We endeavour to provide continuity of care during your pregnancy and postnatally, but you will get the chance to meet the other members of the team.

Sarah Parsons - Wellington Midwifery Practice

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.

Penina Fitisemanu - 24/7 Midwifery Services

Talofa lava, Bula Vinaka, Malo e lelei, Kia Orana, Fakaalofa atu, Kia Ora!

My name is Penina Fitisemanu and I am currently the only Pasefika Midwife who works in the Wellington Central and suburban areas of the CCDHB catchment region. I am of Samoan and Swiss descent.

I have been a Midwife for 24 years and also trained as a Registered Nurse.

I am available to care for Pasefika and Maori women, their partners and their pepe’s/pepi to offer an alternate option for choice as an LMC from the mainstream providers that are available.

As a Pasefika woman I value language, culture, family, faith, customs and traditions which are the foundations of who I am. As a Midwife I bring these values with me when I care for women from not only a Samoan background but also different Pasefika nations and Maori. 

I acknowledge Pasefika and Maori women are uniquely different but intimately understand we share very similar cultural beliefs. I believe by offering a culturally appropriate service this will provide the highest satisfaction, access and equitable care for both Pasefika and Maori Women as consumers of maternity care.

I recognize Maori as Tangata Whenua and the importance of Te Tiriti O Waitangi as an essential component for healthcare provision.

I can take up to 6 women per month and early enquiries are encouraged via email.

I work in a group setting for backup, provide Continuity of Care as the model of Midwifery care and facilitate births at Wellington Regional Hospital. Ia manuia

Grada Dixon - Nikau Midwives

I provide care to women who wish to birth at Paraparaumu Maternity, or Wellington Hospital. All antenatal appointments are done at clinic and postnatal visits will be done at home. 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
