About Me

You're pregnant! What an amazing journey you have begun. I can walk alongside you as your guide, tailoring care just for you. As your midwife we work together, I present you with the most up to date information during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and you make informed choices. My philosophy is around a healthy you and baby and my practice has a strong focus of birth being a normal life event. If the pregnancy strays from normal as your advocate I will refer you to the best health professional possible for extra care and support. I use the latest technology to streamline my practice which means my care plans are in depth and we cover birth scenarios and preferences in detail so that your birth choices are clear. I offer paper and online resources in Māori, Hindi, Chinese and other languages for our diverse community because every woman deserves the same high quality care. I am a primary care midwife, part of the wonderful midwifery team at Womb and I look forward to meeting you.
