Sheryl Morris

Time is an important word for me when I think about how to describe my practice as a midwife. Giving women the time they need to ask questions, check things out and discuss options enables women to make the right choices for them on their journey to becoming a mother. Spending time getting to know the women I care for allows me to provide respectful, empowering and inclusive care for both women and their whanau.
I began practising as a midwife in 2011 and I love what I do. Providing confident care and support during this emotional and life changing journey is a true privilege. I approach my practice with calmness, confidence, and safety and will support women where they choose to birth – at home, at our fantastic primary unit in Paraparaumu and in Wellington Regional Hospital.
I originally qualified as a secondary teacher and spent several years teaching both here and overseas. Working with people and being part of their journey is something I have always enjoyed.
As part of my own journey I am currently working on a research project for my Masters Degree in Midwifery.
I live on the Kapiti Coast with my partner, our 3 children, and our small zoo – a cat, dogs, chickens and bees. I love being on the beach, in the garden with my roses, on my bike and with my beautiful family.
Some Feedback:

My first child so very clueless and I placed full trust in Sheryl. Most significant event of my life and I felt safe, informed and very well cared for.’

Sheryl was amazing – everything we could have hoped for in our midwife and more. Her advice support and information were second to none. She was always there no matter the issue. She filled me with confidence throughout my pregnancy and heading into labour so that I was looking forward to it. She has an infectious energy.’

Sheryl was perfect! Did an awesome job at making me feel at ease and gave me so much confidence as a first time mum.’
Sheryl gave me the confidence to make decisions I felt were right for myself and my baby. She always provided up to date information, allowing me to make informed choices. I began this pregnancy feeling vulnerable due to past experiences and ended it feeling empowered as a woman.’
