Congratulations on your pregnancy!

As a midwife being invited to share in this incredibly special life journey with women and their whanau is an absolute privilege. I love that I get to walk alongside you as you grow your families and navigate the new experiences that each pregnancy, birth, and baby bring.

I believe that pregnancy and birth are normal life events for women and will respect and empower you to fulfil your individual pregnancy and birthing aspirations in the birth environment of your choice, whether this is home, primary birthing unit, or hospital. I also bring the latest research and midwifery knowledge to this partnership so that you are fully informed and will work alongside you to ensure that you receive individualised midwifery care.

Midwifery became my passion during my personal experience of becoming a mother to my two children. I received exceptional midwifery care and understand the significance of the relationship that you have with your midwife, and the impact that this can have on your childbirth experience. I then volunteered at childbirth education classes for two years whilst continuing to work full time, before deciding to make a career change and pursue my goal of becoming a midwife. I graduated with a Bachelor of Midwifery from Otago Polytechnic in 2017 and am currently completing the Midwifery First Year of Practice Programme.

I am proud to work alongside the lovely and incredibly supportive team at Nikau Midwives.
