Originally a Registered General Nurse, I qualified as a Registered midwife in 1991 and worked in a busy consultant unit at Oxford Radcliffe NHS Trust, UK for 15 years. Here I gained all round experience in varied aspects of midwifery,including the high risk unit, transitional care and community midwifery in a peripheral birthing unit.
I moved to New Zealand in 2004 with my husband and three sons, now two young men and one teenager, six months after a memorable camper van trip around the North and South Islands, settling on the Hibiscus Coast.
I have worked as an Independent midwife since 2007 and enjoy working closely with families in the local community, having the opportunity to be involved with each unique and special childbirth experience.
Managing my own caseload gives me the opportunity to enjoy some leisure and family time in our lovely surroundings and the various activities that come with having three growing sons.
