Your birth. Your way.

My antenatal classes will leave you feeling confident and excited about birth and the weeks that follow. Too often, birth is described as a time of pain, suffering, and fear – but I can reassure you my antenatal classes are a strictly no fear-mongering zone.

My job throughout our time together is to help alleviate any anxieties you have and equip you with information so you can make fully informed decisions. Having been a midwife for 15 years, I can help you separate fact from fiction and make the right decisions for your family.

What to expect

My antenatal classes are designed for mums and their chosen birthing partners. I teach a mix of evening classes in Botany and Saturday classes in Howick. I recommend booking a class that starts early in your third trimester so you can finish well before birth.

Howick Classes are 2 consecutive Saturdays, 1230pm-5pm.

Botany Classes are 4 consecutive Wednesdays, 6pm-830pm

What will be covered

My 15 years as a midwife means I have seen and experienced it all. No question is too strange or small. It’s a privilege to share my extensive knowledge and hands-on experience of birth with expectant mothers and their partners.

Antenatal advice you can trust

As a midwife, I’m qualified to provide in-depth insight and education about birth that exceeds what most childbirth educators have to offer. I’ve personally delivered hundreds of babies and witnessed firsthand the many different ways women can bring new life into this world. My experience covers home births, hospital births, medically assisted births, and all levels of intervention.

I hold a Certificate of Midwifery from Bastyr University in Washington State, USA. I’m a New Zealand registered midwife through the Midwifery Council of NZ (and have been since 2005). I’m also a member of the New Zealand College of Midwives.
