Midwifery Service

Practice

Congratulations on discovering you are going to be a mum, what a wonderful journey you have ahead! It is my privilege to encourage, support and empower women and their families throughout the extraordinary journey that is pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. Aided by youthful vitality and a BHSc (midwifery) qualification, my aim is to work in full partnership with women while providing up-to-date evidence based information. I feel confident to involve the appropriate health professionals when required to ensure the safety of you and your baby. I strive to ensure women are fully informed of all of their options and allow them to make the best decisions involving maternity care.

I am happy to support women who want a vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC) and water births. I also provide supportive care for younger mums to be. At home I live with a supportive partner. I do not work in isolation; I am a part of an extremely supportive practice of midwives who share the same philosophy. I have gained various clinical experiences including working in a birthing unit in Fiji’s tertiary hospital. I take a small caseload of women each month to ensure I am able to provide exceptional, individualised care. 

I work as an LMC midwife across the West Auckland area and I look forward to supporting you on your journey. 

My back up midwife is Ayla Thomas
