Colleen Manickum - Midwife
I am a Lead Maternity Carer that focuses on the individual needs of each mother, to ensure she chooses the best care for the birth of her child.
I look after mothers in Mangere and surrounding suburbs.
My back up midwife is Federica Tomasi.
I speak English & limited Shona.
In addition to the birthing facilities listed below I also provide home birth.
