Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am a mother of five and have been a Midwife since 1991. I love being involved with families and attending births. I believe birth is a normal life event and I am passionate about women being well informed and supported to birth naturally. I fully support breastfeeding and development of the mother/baby relationship.
I live in Athenree, just south of Waihi, and care for women in the Western Bay of Plenty, Waihi Beach and Waihi/Paeroa area. I am also happy to care for women in Whangamata.
I have extensive experience in all types of maternity care and will support you to birth where you feel most comfortable. I have a special interest in home birth and many of the women I care for choose to birth at home or in primary (small maternity unit) settings.
I use homoeopathy and herbal medicine as part of my practice and I am a qualified Midwifery Acupuncturist.
I have a small monthly caseload and am happy to visit you at home or in clinic.
