Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am slowly returning to practice after time off raising my own baby, for this reason I only take a very small caseload & run only one clinic day on a Monday.
I'm a registered midwife working as an LMC in the central Auckland area, I graduated with a BHSc in Midwifery & have spent the past 10 years working both as staff at Auckland City Hospital & as an LMC.
I love the ethnic diversity that comes with working in Auckland & find it a very humbling privilege to be able to be a close part of this journey together with the families I care for.
My philosophy is to encourage women to keep themselves fit, healthy & happy during their pregnancies & a safe, positive outcome for Mother & baby is the most important aspect to me.
I'm comfortable birthing at both Birthcare and hospital but my focus is on natural birth & aiming to avoid unnecessary interventions where appropriate.
I work closely with a midwife that shares a similar practice to ensure regular time off.
