Congratulations on your pregnancy.
I have been a registered midwife since 2012 and am based in Wanaka. I have a small caseload of women birthing each month, this ensures that I am able to provide you with individually tailored care.
I believe that childbirth is maximized through health and well-being. Being pregnant is a life changing event and I will provide you with current, up-to-date information so that you are able to make informed decisions that I will respect and support.
Not all pregnancies and births are free from complication. I have built a good relationship with the Obstetric team in Dunedin and if necessary will refer you to ensure you get the very best care you need.
I provide labour and birth care either in your home or Charlotte Jean Maternity Hospital in Alexandra. I actively promote the benefits of using water for labour or birth, hypnobirthing and encouraging positional and breathing techniques.
All postnatal care takes place at your home. Its an exciting but challenging time coming home with a new baby, so I'll visit often in the early days, to help support you and your baby and to reassure you that you are doing a great job.
My family and I have lived in Wanaka since 2009, we all enjoy skiing and tramping, we love living here and have a unique understanding of the challenges that living in this rural paradise brings, particularly when having a baby.
I look forward to hearing from you.
