“E te tau, whaia e koe nga toi a Hineiwaiwa, kia whiwhi ai koe he mararamatanga mohou. E te whanau, e taria iho ra te whakatakoto takapau wharikitanga; taupuhipuhitia, tauawhiawhitia te whare tangata me ona ahuatanga katoa”. Kia ora. I’m of TeArawa, Tuwharetoa, Tainui, Raukawa descent, practising in Rotorua and its surrounding areas since 1997. As a community midwife I provide full midwifery care. I love working alongside mama & their whanau; in strengthening healthy life choices and to be actively involved through pregnancy (haputanga), labour (whakamamaetanga), birth (whakawhanautanga) and the postnatal period (tiakanga tamariki). I hold antenatal clinics at the Kia Puawai Whare, 1 Brookland Rd and do home-visits after baby is born. Other support services at the KP Whare include a lactation consultant, hapu teenager support, smoking cessation, transport, extra support for first time mama, as well as registered nurses & visiting JP.

 I am a woman, a mother and a midwife. Firstly, congratulations on your pregnancy. What an exciting journey you are about to embark upon. For me the journey and experience of becoming a mother should be one that is positive exciting and filled with joy. It is a time of learning new things and growing and sharing experiences. I have one son who is soon to be 10yrs old and though we have tried for another we have been unsuccessful.Thus I treasure the time I get to spend with you, your family and your new baby. This journey is yours to take and I will inform you and provide you with up to date information that allows you to make informed decisions about your care.
