Midwifery Service


  • Lana Dillon

I view pregnancy and birth as normal, life-changing events and feel very privileged to share this amazing journey with you and your whānau. I aim to develop a strong partnership with you, empowering you to make informed choices about your experience through information sharing and by providing individualised, safe care. It is important to me that you feel supported at all times, especially as you adjust to having a new baby at home.
