Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am happy to care for you during your pregnancy, labour and birth and for the six weeks postpartum.

I will work in partnership with you and endeavour that this period of your life will reflectively be one of the happiest times ever.

 I do homebirths, Birthcare in Parnell, Helensville Birthing Unit and some at Waitakere and North Shore Hospital.

I speak some French.

I have 3 children myself aged 28, 24 and 21. I am Grandma Kiwi to little Rory, Nuala-Belle and Arlo but sadly they live 12,000 miles away in the UK, where I lived until I was 40!!!

My passions - apart from midwifery - are my animals: 2 dogs (labradoodle and a rough collie) and 4 cats, reading and writing, a little art work and history, especially genealogy.

I look forward to meeting you and commencing this fabulous and completely awesome journey together :)
