Philosophy of care: pregnancy and childbirth is part of the natural lifecycle of each woman, and every woman’s experience is unique. We are happy to support a woman in her choices and decisions for a safe and happy journey to the birth of her child. We believe that women’s needs are determined not only by her medical conditions, but also by her and her whānau’s individual cultural, social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs. Therefore, from our point of view, we aim to use a woman-centred, evidence-based approach to guide our practice, and to build a rapport that allows women to feel empowered and confident of their transitions to parenthood.
Back up midwife: Kate Sheppard Midwifery
Birth facilities attended: North Shore Hospital.
General bio: Hi, my name is Cloris Li and I’m a registered midwife working out of a large practice on the North Shore and West Auckland. I was trained at AUT with a Bachelor of Midwifery degree and worked at North Shore Hospital as a core midwife after I graduated. I have gained a lot of experience looking after women and their babies with complicated needs while I was working in hospital. However, I do believe that pregnancy and birth are a normal part of life for each woman and its uniqueness is determined by not only the woman’s medical needs, but also her social, cultural and ethnic circumstances.
