Rodney Coast Midwives www.rodneycoastmidwives.com/
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.

I worked at Whangarei Hospital as a core midwife before changing to a community based LMC (Lead Maternity Carer). My clinic is based in Wellsford where I do antenatal visits.
My role is to provide support & guidance through your pregnancy/birth and postnatal journey. Aiming for a safe, fun, happy and healthy experience. You should make your own informed choices during this time in your life and I am here to serve as a sounding board, help you with decisions and offer advice.
I believe that "LESS IS MORE" during pregnancy/birth and parenting. I consider my role a privilege and a pleasure to be involved with your family/whānau.
I can support you to birth at Home, Warkworth Birthing Centre, Wellsford Birthing Unit, Whangarei Hospital.
Areas covered: Wellsford to Brenderwyns, including Mangawhai out to Maungaturoto

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.
Birth Options: Warkworth Birthing Centre, Home, North Shore Hospital.

As a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) since 1998 I have had the privilege of meeting hundreds of lovely families across Auckland. During my midwifery career I have worked as a Clinical Manager in a Tertiary hospital and a Primary Birth Centre so where ever you are planning to have your baby I will work with you to plan a natural active birth. My special interest is working with women who are planning to birth at our Warkworth Birthing Centre, Wellsford birth unit or at home as my preference is to book women who are committed to the normal birth pathway. I am well versed in recognising when a woman's journey moves away from normal and will refer as appropriate to the North Shore or Whangarei Hospital Obstetric Team. The group of midwives I work with provide support for each other and are like-minded in their practice. My caseload is small, antenatal visits are at the Wellsford and Warkworth clinics and postnatal visits will be in your home.
Areas covered: Warkworth area to Wellsford including Mangawhai.

Congratulations on discovering you are going to be a mother, what an amazing and exciting journey.
I decided at the age of 8 after I saw a birth that midwifery was my future! I became a nurse first then a midwife. I have been a midwife for 23 years and have worked both in the community and hospital settings in the UK and here in NZ. As I have evolved in my practice I have become passionate about home births and primary birthing. With great support women are able to achieve amazing things!
My aim is to work in full partnership with women on their journey to motherhood. I do this by creating an environment and relationship that is supportive, informative and safe.
I live with my husband, daughter and furry family member Max the dog! I am learning to sew and grow veges! I love walking and spending time with family and friends.
Areas covered: Warkworth to Wellsford

My role is to support you through this journey offering guidance, information sharing and the freedom to make informed choices for you and your family.
I look forward to sharing this amazing journey with you and your family.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am an experienced LMC midwife caring for women and families from Silverdale north to Warkworth and surrounding areas. I enjoy my work as a midwife immensely, particularly the connection I develop with my clients, and seeing them become happy and confident parents during the postnatal period. I believe every women should have a positive maternity experience irrespective of the choices she makes. I offer kind, knowledgeable and competent care which respects and protects the body’s natural ability to birth, while keeping the safety of mother and baby forefront if/when pregnancy and/or birth becomes complicated. I live in Silverdale with my husband, teenage children and beautiful Siamese cats, and enjoy being out on the water in our boat.
