Kia ora and Greetings. I am an experienced midwife with some 33 years of practice behind me. I have practised in a variety of settings, both as a core midwife and LMC as well as a number of midwifery management positions. However I am always drawn back to clinical midwifery, working with women and their families/whānau is a priviledge and joy for me. I am truly passionate about midwifery and the opportunities we have to be part of women's life. I am part of a midwifery practice and work with a back up midwifery partner. I work across all areas of our scope of practice, enjoy doing home deliveries but equally enjoy working with women who wish to birth in hospital. I am happy to provide care for women with complex needs and value and respect other health care workers as part of our pregnancy and birthing journey. I am a long time member of NZCOM, have been a Midwifery Standards Reviewer and will at times have a student midwife with me as I am committed to growing our profession. I look forward to meeting you.
