Choice Midwifery

About Me

Kia ora, I work in with the wider Choice Midwifery group but take a small primarily homebirth caseload of 12-20 births per year. I strongly believe in your right to lead your care and make your own informed decisions. I have plenty of experience caring for whānau birthing at home, have worked with people from many different cultural backgrounds, as well as with those in the Rainbow community. I have worked as a remote rural, primary, and occasionally tertiary hospital midwife, and now work in urban Dunedin. On your journey, I encourage you to use whichever therapies you want, to help achieve a safe & memorable birth experience. We own 3 modern birth pools which we loan out to clients. I am happy to recommend different holistic practitioners locally. I provide shared care with the obstetric and paediatric teams if and when the need arises. We pride ourselves on being clinically up-to-date and having a solid, evidence-based practice. I have a wee boy called Bowie and co-Chair the local College chapter.

How to Get Hold of Me

As of July I am taking a reduced caseload of one client per month. I will be focusing on facilitating homebirths and caring for returning clients. Please do still be in touch via our enquiry form, and our admin team will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange care within the larger Choice Midwifery team.
