I am a young enthusiastic midwife and the proud mother of two delightful little people.
I chose to birth both of my babies at home and was fortunate enough to have two beautiful home water births. These personal experiences have strengthened my commitment to help you to have an equally positive empowering birth experience wherever you choose to birth.
I have access agreements with both Tauranga Hospital, and the Bethlehem Birthing Centre, this means I can support you to birth at either of these two places. I am passionate about home birth and am happy to discuss this birthing option with you and your family/whanau.
I believe that Pregnancy, Labour and Childbirth are all natural life events, which are best accomplished with a maximum of support, care and communication and a minimum of intervention. I also acknowledge that there are situations where intervention is indeed necessary. I am equipped and capable of dealing with these and able to liaise with the appropriate skilled health professionals as appropriate.
As your midwife, it is my role not to control but to support, encourage and guide you throughout your childbearing journey. I am an advocate of natural birth and will encourage you to remain active during labour and to try natural alternatives to traditional pain relief.
I am friendly, open minded, approachable and committed to providing the best possible care for you and your family/whanau throughout your pregnancy, labour, birth and post-natal period. I work closely with a small group of experienced midwives who all share similar philosophies.
I look forward to meeting you and would feel honoured and excited to share this amazing journey with you!
