Midwifery Service


I am a lead maternity care Midwife working in the Lakes district including Taupō and Tūrangi. I have been living and working in Taupō since 1992.

It is a privilege to provide continuity of care for pregnant women and their families from conception to six weeks postpartum. I bring a wealth of local experience and knowledge to the women I provide midwifery care to.
