Over the past 39 years, I have worked as both a hospital and home-birth midwife in England, Canada, and New Zealand. I now teach in the Midwifery Programme at AUT University.
Having attended over a 1000 births, I know that birth has the potential to be a joyful and empowering life-changing experience. I wish for all women, the confidence to birth calmly and naturally; and in so doing, support their babies to enter the world in an aware and gentle way. I am excited to be able to offer Calmbirth® Classes, as I believe the classes offer women and their partners the opportunity to realize this potential. The classes are unique; providing information and skills to relax body and mind. Calmbirth® classes are for all women and their partners, or birthing companions, regardless of Lead Maternity Carer, or place of birth. Classes are small, and located in central Auckland.
