I have been qualified and registered since 2000. I moved to New Zealand with my husband and two children and began work soon after, as a midwife, at Wellington Hospital. My time in a tertiary unit has afforded me the opportunity to care for women along the low to high risk spectrum. The time is now right to become an LMC midwife as part of a team. I feel extremely fortunate to have found professional partners who share the same desire and need to promote a level of care that is quality driven and woman-centred. In essence, we as a team, strive to provide a safe, healthy and individualised pregnancy and birth and further support you and your family through the early postnatal experience. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
