Welcome to my website!
Marie has moved! I am now in my own office in the Grey Building, at the ASB Sports Centre grounds located in Kensington Avenue.
Heaps of free parking.
LOCUM MIDWIVES: If I have been up all night, or on delivery suite with a lady in labour, to ensure that clients are seen, I have two fantastic locums who facilitate my clinics, Trish Mulholland and Annette Griffin, these guys are just awesome.
Please see the Locum tab for their introduction. My back-up midwife for weekends off is Janine Woodward.
I will be updating this site as I can :-)
There is lots going on with coffee groups and workshops for pregnant women and new mum's at Te Puawai Ora, Commerce Street, every Mondays between 10am-12pm (except during school holidays). AWESOME ways to meet new mum's and learn about your new baby with some great hints and tips :-)
A WORD ABOUT TEXT/FACEBOOK MESSAGING : Ladies please PHONE if you have any concerns about you or baby. Do not text or Facebook message because we cannot respond immediately and concerns can be lost in text translation. We will always answer the phone!
You are a midwife assisting at someone else's birth. Do good without show or fuss. Facilitate what is happening rather than what you think ought to be happening.
If you must take the lead, lead to that the mother is helped, yet still free and in charge. When the baby is born, the mother will rightly say - We did it ourselves." Tao de Ching
Interesting articles and news about midwifery, pregnancy, breastfeeding and much more, come and read my blog.
Our birthing pools are available free of charge to use at home or
hospital, however there is a charge for the liner. If you would like to
have a water birth, talk to Marie, we are here to answer your questions.
Marie endorses the New Zealand College of Midwives 'Partnership model of care' which emphasises an open communicative relationship of sharing information. This means we form a partnership with you to create a plan designed specifically to address the special needs of your pregnancy.
We have assisted many women to have a life fulfilling and satisfying childbirth and we look forward to having the opportunity to do the same with you.
We recognise the unique place of Maori in New Zealand and believe that understanding between cultures is best learnt through listening, sharing, respect and talking.
The heart of our philosophy is that you and your family/whanau deserve the best care during your pregnancy.

There may be times when your concern is out of our scope of practice and may warrant a GP visit or Obstetric input.
Because of the work we do and babies can come any time of the day or night, we apologise in advance as we may have to reschedule your appointments.
