​     Profile &       philosophy

Midwife and Mother of 2 Children Max and Lotus.


I consider my role as a Midwife to be a great honour and I endeavour to form trusting, respectful and reciprocal relationships with the women I share the journey of childbirth with.  My Midwifery relationship with a woman comes from an equal sharing of insights and knowledge and follows a path of negotiation and bonding. As a Midwife, I uphold the fundamental rights of women to birth their babies in a safe environment of their choosing with woman-centred evidence-based appropriate care by a qualified and registered Midwife and a multi-disciplinary team when required.  

My role as a Midwife is to work with women offering insightful education and options, in a respectful manner allowing the woman to make her own self-determined choices and decisions resulting in the best outcome for herself and her baby.   

I provide woman-centred care promoting normal physiological birth, in conjunction with being acutely aware of the need to identify any problems or complications of mother/baby.  I am able to identify any urgent/emergency situations providing appropriate collaborative care and timely referrals with the multidisciplinary healthcare team when out of my scope of practice.
