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 provide Primary Midwifery Care at Waitakere Maternity Unit and believe that pregnancy and birth can be a natural and rewarding part of your life. I aim to help you believe and realise how strong you are through your magic journey of birth.
I am passionate about pregnancy and birth and aim to provide you with the information necessary to make informed decisions.
I will organise all aspects of your antenatal, labour & birth, and postnatal care.
With my years of experience, I am trained to recognise when events deviate from normal. As I aim to provide you with the safest birth for you and your baby, I have no hesitation in referring you to Specialist Obstetric care if it becomes necessary. I have an excellent working relationship with the doctors and midwives at Waitakere Maternity Unit.
I work within a team of four midwives at West Auckland Midwives, who are all caring and compassionate. There may be times when one of these amazing midwives in our team may be involved in your care during my weekends off or holidays.
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.
I also have a private business where I offer non-medical/non-diagnostic ultrasound scanning: www.sneakpeekultrasound.nz
I will contact you during normal working hours after you make an enquiry for midwifery care.
It could take a few days to get back to you if I have been busy with emergencies or births.
Thank you for your understanding.
