My name is Glen and I am a Registered Midwife working as a community Lead Maternity Carer based in Rotorua providing full antenatal, labour & birth and postnatal care up to 6 weeks. I do home visits also.
I am a father of 2 beautiful girls and have a strong family focus which is the base of my midwifery philosophy. I see pregnancy and childbirth as a normal physiological life event which is inherently linked with whānau/family and will support their involvement in your journey as much as you desire. I am committed to supporting women to make the choices that are right for them so they have the experience they want.
Yours and your baby's emotional and physical health and well-being is important to me so I have no problem consulting with other health professionals if needed to ensure a safe outcome for both.
