Sarah Bromley

Sarah Sarah has been practicing as an independent midwife on the Kāpiti coast for the past 5 years, and has been part of the Nikau Midwives team for the past 3 years. She lives in beautiful Raumati Beach and is a busy mum to her 3 children, Jamie, Rose and Rhain. Sarah's family are of course her first priority, and she has found that specialising presently in antenatal and postnatal care is a way to enable her to have the quality time with her young family that they need. This allows Sarah to enjoy the passion of a career that her heart and soul are very much entwined with.
Sarah also looks after women who are involved with specialist teams in town and those requiring elective caesarean sections.
Sarah thoroughly enjoys and loves the privilege of working with women in this context, and feels that working with women who may have been unable to have a midwife involved in their care antenally really appreciate the devoted care and support that Sarah is able to provide them with.
Sarah also regularly works as a locum midwife for her colleagues within Nikau Midwives, when they require time away from work.
Midwifery has always been a part of Sarah's life, as her mother was a homebirth community midwife in England in the 1960's prior to emigrating to start a new life in New Zealand.
Sarah has travelled widely, before settling back in New Zealand to raise her family, living and working in various countries. Her most significant time was the year she spent working as a volunteer for an NGO in the Himalayan foothills in Uttar Pradesh, in northern India, providing both educational support (as a qualified teacher), as well as emergency healthcare within a remote rural environment, sometimes spending days trekking to isolated areas in need. This experience has lingered with Sarah, and she eagerly awaits the time when it is possible to continue this life changing work, within the international midwifery community.
Sarah's midwifery philosophy is based around viewing childbirth as a normal, and joyous life event, involving women and their whanau. She believes in a relationship with women built on informed consent, providing safe and effective evidence based practice, allowing and encouraging a fulfilling journey through pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.
Sarah is trained in acupuncture, having done a full year training programme in acupuncture for midwives with the New Zealand School of Acupuncture. She uses acupuncture as desired and as needed within her work as a midwife. She has also completed a homeopathy workshop and combines this with her practice also.
