Congratulations on your pregnancy! Having three children myself, I feel very privileged in my role of helping women to become mothers. I truly value journeying with women and their families during such an important time in their lives. I believe in birth as a natural process and am passionate about supporting women to achieve normal physiological births. However I am also well trained to recognise complications when they occur and consult specialist services accordingly. I attend births at North Shore Hospital and Home, including waterbirths and VBACs. At Hauraki Midwives I work closely with a group of like-minded midwives who offer the same philosophy of naturally-focused care. I take a small caseload each month to allow to me to provide individualised care whilst also spending time with my family.

I am contactable during normal working hours (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) by phone or text on 021-256-6813. My clinics are held in Northcote. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a registered Midwife and have been providing LMC care to women for the last 14 years. Our practice philosophy is that pregnancy and child birth are normal and natural life events. Our clients are generally well women and we encourage them to be proactive in their own health and self care during pregnancy. We are happy to support women to birth at home or North Shore Hospital and offer waterbirths if desired. We embrace the use of complimentary therapies in pregnancy if clients choose, and will work collaboratively with other health professionals should any complications arise during pregnancy, labour, birth or in the postnatal period. We offer care that is professional, holistic in nature, woman and midwife centered and family friendly. Clinic is located at FlexaClinic in Lake Rd, Northcote. I am married with 3 grown up children, and 6 grandchildren, living in Takapuna.
