I have been a practicing Midwife for 19 years. During my 13 years at Box Hill Hospital, I worked within a continuity of care program, Know Your Midwife, as a primary care provider of five women per month. I provided antenatal, birthing and postnatal midwifery care and education to women, their families and babies. Being on-call 24 hours a day for five days a week to take calls from women or attend the hospital for labour and birth care, I worked in collaboration with obstetric staff to provide best standard practice. The women felt involved in their care, issues were followed through, but most importantly I was able to build a rapport and develop trusting relationships through continuity of care.
For the last five years, I have been working within the award winning maternity unit at The Bays Hospital in Mornington.
After furthering my qualifications with the Graduate Certificate in Midwifery, provided by Flinders University SA, I am passionate about providing a more holistic level of care to women in the community. Achieving this endorsement to my qualification has allowed me to renew my passion for providing continuity of care. I believe by caring and working with you during your pregnancy, you will build your confidence and will be empowered to enter the last stages of your pregnancy with confidence in your body. I look forward to giving you ongoing care and support after the birth of your baby once you are home.
