Bachelor of Midwifery, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand, 12 November 2004


Years of practice: over 8 years.

Philosophy of care: I am a midwife who is passionate about caring for women through their pregnancy, birth and early mothering journey.  I enjoy supporting women to be as healthy as possible during this time so that they are able to have as normal an experience as possible.  I refer women to Natural Therapy practitioners when needed, and I find that treatment with acupuncture, osteopathy, homeopathy and naturopathy can help support normal processes.  I also encourage women and their partners to learn Hypnobirthing techniques. I also appreciate that not all women will have a straightforward experience.  To this end I have an excellent working relationship with the Obstetric Team at Auckland Hospital, and refer my women as necessary to secondary care.

Back up midwife: all the team back each other up at Auckland Maternity Care.

Birth facilities attended: home birthing, Auckland Hospital and Birthcare (Parnell).
