Experience

I have been with My Midwives for nearly 4 years now.  I enjoy providing continuity of midwifery care in an all risk model.  I was also the clinical coordinator for the Rural Private Midwifery education project, which run over 2 years by emerging students in private practice and continuity of care models for the duration of their studies.

Midwifery Interest

I am passionate about continuity of care and that every women deserve a known midwife throughout their pregnancy.  I feel the more we educate and support  woman and their families about the processes surrounding of birth and help guide then in the life changing event of parenthood, the more empowered they feel to move forward in this new phase of their life.

Other Interests

Outside Midwifery my time is spend with my husband and kids. I am blessed with 4 beautiful children and we love to get outdoors. Bush walking, camping and holidaying!
