Rodney Coast Midwives
As a midwife, my aim is to support women to have a positive experience, before, during and after the birth of their child. It is important to me to treat women as individuals, to inform and support them in making choices. I have wide experience as a midwife over the last 32 years, both in Britain and in aid agencies around the world. I returned with my husband (my best friend) to NZ in early 2007. My interests are walking, water activities and music. I have clients from Warkworth in the south to Maungaturoto in the north.
Birth Options: Home, Warkworth Birthing Centre, Wellsford Birthing Unit, North Shore Hospital or Whangarei Hospital.

I am a NZ Registered Nurse; then trained in Scotland as a midwife, qualifying in 1992. I have three boys, two of whom were born at home. Since 1999 I have been working with Rodney Coast Midwives, providing all aspects of midwifery care. I believe midwifery is a partnership, where women and their partners are offered sound information so that they can make informed choices about their care. I am actively involved in a church and several community groups. I enjoy my family, organic gardening and handcrafts.

As a practising midwife for 10 years I have worked as a case loading and core staff midwife concurrently. I support women in making informed decisions and offer home, hospital, and water birth. My focus is on the physiology of pregnancy, labour and childbirth as normal life events. I have undertaken the Complex Care Course at National Women’s Hospital where I studied and worked within high risk maternity areas. Prior to training in Midwifery I worked as a Naturopath for 13 years running clinics, training programmes, and workshops. My clinics were largely focussed on women’s health. I find people fascinating and am mesmerised by our uniqueness which is evident from the moment of birth. I enjoy the great outdoors, gardening, reading, music, and I treasure family time.

I graduated in 2011 and spent three years at Whangarei Hospital before becoming a Self-Employed Midwife. I feel that my role is to support and guide women through their pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey, ensuring a safe, happy and healthy experience. I believe in women making their own informed choices during this time in their lives and am happy to accommodate any individual/religious/cultural beliefs. I believe in the “less is more” approach during pregnancy/birth! I consider my part a privilege and a pleasure to be involved with your family/whanau. I live in Wellsford with my husband and two daughters. We enjoy various activities as a family, including travelling, fishing, cooking/baking, movies and gardening. Child birth is the most ordinary miracle - you can’t believe it happens every day!
Areas covered: Warkworth North to Brenderwyns and Paparoa out to Mangawhai.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Childbirth is a life changing event and I feel honoured to be able to support and guide women and their families through this precious and sacred time. I aim to provide individualised, safe, up-to-date care throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. I endeavour to establish a good partnership with you to achieve a positive and unique experience that can be cherished. I am passionate about supporting women to achieve natural, gentle birth in low risk settings. However, having worked as a core midwife at Auckland Hospital I am aware that sometimes complications occur. Continuity and women centred care is important to me. I am enthusiastic about the postpartum phase and enjoy walking alongside women as they transition into motherhood. I live in Warkworth on my family farm, where I grew up. I value the importance of being surrounded by a strong and supportive network of colleagues, friends and family.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a Registered Nurse and LMC Midwife. I am passionate about women’s health, particularly in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. It is a joy to share in the journey with women and partners as their families grow. Providing individualised care, unique to each woman is important in ensuring an enjoyable transition to becoming a mother. We have an admired maternity system in New Zealand where midwives like myself are highly skilled practitioners specialising in the normal while also recognising and referring to obstetric care if needed. I live in Mahurangi West with my family on a small block of land with an assortment of animals. I love spending time in the garden.
Areas Covered: Warkworth to Dairy Flat, Orewa and Silverdale.

I was born and raised on the North Shore and moved onto the Coast over 10 years ago. I have been practicing midwifery for 15 years. I feel that birth is an extremely personal and powerful time and women need to feel confident and supported with the choices they make. I am happy to support primary birthing at home, at Warkworth Birthing Unit, and at North Shore Hospital, I am happy to support waterbirth and also women who need a higher level of care with obstetric input. Birth can be natural and drug free but each woman needs to make choices that are right for her, her family/whanau and her particular circumstance. Pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period is an amazing time in any woman's life but when you look back it is also a relatively short time. Becoming a parent and a family is something that lasts forever and I believe that if you lay good foundations at the beginning your journey will be richer. I look forward to sharing this time with you.

Having a child is a major life event and I feel privileged to be involved in the care of women and babies as a Midwife. My aim is to provide information which supports women to be active in the decision making process regarding their care. I want to ensure women and their families are provided with positive experiences during this precious time in their lives. Continuity of care is an aspect of Midwifery I am passionate about. I enjoy forming partnerships with women and their families to provide them with individualised care and support during pregnancy, birth and the early stages of parenthood.
I live on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula with my husband where I grew up. I enjoy the outdoors and love taking my very active golden Labrador for walks along my local beaches. I am a keen baker and enjoy spending quality time with family and friends.
