Hi,

I am a midwife with 28 years experience. I have worked in the UK, NZ and Australia. I have worked in many settings. I have a diploma in childbirth education and have provided traditional antenatal classes for a number of years.

In today's climate I believe it is necessary to be creative in the way that antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal education is presented. We all have busy lives and sometimes traditional attendance in a class environment isn't always easy.

Please enjoy the information presented and feel free to contact me for further information.
