Whilst my previous working life was spent conducting ecological work in rural and remote areas, after the birth of our second baby, I just couldn’t shake off the little (loud!) voice inside which kept telling me I was meant to be a midwife. Over the last four years I have had the pleasure of supporting women and their families across the childbirth continuum in both public and private sectors. I love what I do and get so much satisfaction and joy from midwifery. Learning from my amazing mentors and from the women I support continues to shape me as a mother and midwife.

Mdwifery Interests

I have seen first hand, both personally and professionally, how the relationship between a woman and a known midwife has the potential to not only provide a safe, nurturing environment for women to be guided through pregnancy, birth and those early mothering days but also how far-reaching good support during this time can be. I am totally committed to ensuring that I provide this good support through safe, evidence-based care which is personalised for each woman and family.

Other Interests

With three small children and a farmer husband, most of my spare time revolves around making sure we all get quality time together as a family. We love to spend time outside fishing and camping. In saying that, alone time on a beach with an interesting book is my idea of great time!
