About Me

Congratulations on your pregnancy, this is such an exciting time for you. I am a Midwife who believes that pregnancy and childbirth are a normal part of a woman's life cycle, and I work to support women to stay as healthy as possible so that they can enjoy a straightforward experience. Many of the pregnant women I care for also engage in Hypnobirthing education to prepare for their labour and birth experience. I have a special interest in working with women who are planning to birth at Birthcare in Parnell. My preference is to book women who are committed to the normal birth pathway. If you are planning to birth in the hospital setting, I will work with you to plan a natural active birth that is preferably drug free, and if you wish, a waterbirth. As an experienced Midwife I am also well versed in recognising when a woman’s journey moves away from normal, and I will refer as appropriate to the Obstetric team at Auckland Hospital so that we can work collaboratively towards a healthy and safe outcome.

How to Get Hold of Me

My clinics are at Birthcare Parnell on Tuesday afternoons and a Thursday morning. Please be in contact if you would like to make a booking appointment. You can contact me by email, or by phone - text is preferred as I may be with a client. Please only make contact by phone Mon-Fri, 9.00am-5.00pm. If I do not answer my phone could you please text me your details - name, due date, the number of babies you have had and where you live. I will return your message asap. If you are a returning client and your due month shows as unavailable on my calendar, please be in touch anyway so we can sort something out for you!
