Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I’m Alisha and I work as a LMC midwife within Franklin and surrounding rural areas. I am passionate about working alongside women and their families in partnership and continuity of care to educate, advocate and nourish each journey.
Welcoming a new addition to the family is an intimate and significant life event that I feel honoured to be a part of. My philosophy lies within the primary setting and therefore promote and support physiological birth at Pukekohe Maternity Unit or homebirth.
I provide care throughout your pregnancy, birth and 4-6wks following the birth of your baby. If you prefer or require to be delivered at Middlemore Hospital then I am happy to provide antenatal and postnatal care.
My backup Midwifes are Megan Swarbrick, Keryn Mills, Claire Eyes and Elaine Rudkin.
