Congratulations on your pregnancy, I believe pregnancy is more than development of the baby. It is a special time that marks the rite of passage between individuals to whānau . As a midwife it is a privilege to be involved in this process and watch this development, I believe it is the bonding and support of you as a family that is the most important part of my role.
I work with a team of highly skilled fabulous midwives at Dannevirke Community Hospital, supporting all local women in their birth choices and care and providing 24/7 care. We can help with Homebirth, Waterbirth and primary centre births, we have back up from the team of Doctors and Midwives at Dannevirke & Palmerston North Hospital.
My own specialty is hypnobirthing which I integrate into my standard care.
I am a Kiwi born but have been a midwife for over 20 years, practising in the UK until 3 years ago when I moved back to New Zealand with my family. I have two children of my own and enjoy helping people find their path to parenthood.
