Kia Ora and Congratulations! I have lived in Hāwea for the past 20 years, raising my 2 children in this beautiful town. When I am not working, I enjoy being in the mountains skiing, running or enjoying the lakes with my friends and family. I am excited to be joining the team at Wanaka Midwives and look forward to providing care for local families.
It is my aim to provide comprehensive, safe midwifery care which supports families to make confident and informed decisions while navigating the options our maternity system provides. My passion lies in building a partnership with you during the antenatal period so that care can be tailored to meet your needs and ensure the health of you and your baby remains paramount.
Pregnancy and childbirth are normal life events and I believe in the power to birth safely when you are supported in the birthplace of your choice - I can support you to labour and birth your baby at home or at one of our nearby primary units. If you should require specialist input during your maternity experience, I can refer and work collaboratively with the obstetric teams in Dunedin and Invercargill. All postnatal care is provided in your home as you develop into confident parents.
Our aim at Wanaka Midwives is to provide exceptional, personalised care to the families in our caseloads, all the while ensuring safety by providing support and back up for each other.
I have a small caseload for 2021/22 and I look forward to the possibility of providing care for you. Feel free to get in touch.
