Welcome, and congratulations for your pregnancy! Since becoming a midwife in 2008, I have worked in both large urban and small regional hospitals, as well as group practice and community midwifery. I currently practice as a Medicare endorsed private midwife caring for our diverse Northern Rivers community, providing inclusive and personalised midwifery care in the home, including homebirth options. I passionately believe in maternity care that puts your needs and desires and those of your family at the centre of the experience, and that building a trusting relationship is the best way to achieve this. My aim is to provide you with the latest evidence-based information, support and guidance enabling you to make informed choices along the way.
I work with an experienced group of practitioners with 60+ collective years of experience, servicing the North Coast of NSW.
I have a large referral network to support your pregnancy, birth and postnatal needs including Obstetricians, Physiotherapists, Child and Family Health Nurses, Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Doulas and Acupuncturists.
