Midwifery Service


Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am slowly returning to practice after time off raising my own baby. For this reason I only take a very small caseload & run only one clinic day on a Monday.
I'm a registered midwife working as an LMC in the central Auckland area. I graduated with a BHSc in Midwifery & have spent the past 10 years working both as staff at Auckland City Hospital and as an LMC.
I love the ethnic diversity that comes with working in Auckland and find it a very humbling privilege to be able to be a close part of this journey together with the families I care for.
My philosophy is to encourage women to keep themselves fit, healthy and happy during their pregnancies and a safe, positive outcome for mother & baby is the most important aspect to me.
I'm comfortable birthing at both Birthcare and hospital but my focus is on natural birth and aiming to avoid unnecessary interventions where appropriate.
I work closely with a midwife that shares a similar practice to ensure regular time off.
