Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I have been providing Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) services in West Auckland since 1996 and know it is a privilege to walk alongside you while you make precious and unique birth memories.
I work in partnership with Rachael Hastings, we share a caseload of pregnant mums, and alternate being on call for births throughout the week and weekends.
We provide Primary Midwifery Care at Waitakere Maternity Unit and believe that pregnancy and birth can be a natural and rewarding part of your life. We aim to help you believe and realise how strong you are through your magic journey of birth.
Both Rachael and I are passionate about pregnancy and birth and aim to provide you with the information necessary to make informed decisions.
We will organise all aspects of your antenatal, labour & birth, and postnatal care.
With many years of experience between us, we are trained to recognise when events deviate from normal. We aim to provide you with the safest birth for you and your baby, have no hesitation in referring you to Specialist Obstetric care if it becomes necessary. Both Rachael and I have an excellent working relationship with the doctors and midwives at Waitakere Maternity Unit.
We work within a larger team of five midwives at West Auckland Midwives, who are all caring and compassionate.
I am married and have three grown children and three grandchildren.
I have a wicked sense of humour and enjoy a good laugh.
I am also a little bit of a crazy fitness junkie, enjoying half marathons both on the road and through the bush! I also love getting a little dirty with Tough Guy/Gal events, have competed in three Spartan events in Australia and am very keen on running stairs and CrossFit.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer you ‘interview’ appointments.
I look forward to hearing from you.
