I am a community-based midwife with over 30 years experience offering pregnancy, birth and postnatal care in the Hawke's Bay region. I believe women are amazing and designed to birth safely and gently in whichever birth environment they choose. I am committed to supporting women and their choices to maintain normality, privacy and personal empowerment during their pregnancy. I own and work from the Napier Midwifery Centre on Kennedy Road, along with my three lovely midwife partners. As well as working with beautiful local families, I am the co-chair for the Hawke's Bay College of Midwives, part of the New Zealand Midwifery Standards Review team and the Co-ordinator of the Napier Maternity Resource Centre.
