I am mother to two little girls, whose entry into the world showed me how important pregnancy, birth and the transition to motherhood is. Since then I have devoted my research as lecturer to maternal health promotion and become involved as a consumer for Home Birth Aotearoa and the New Zealand College of Midwives. Currently I lecture in Health Promotion at Victoria University of Wellington.

I am excited to be involved in the Aotearoa Midwifery Project because I love working in partnership with midwives to achieve better outcomes for women. I see great value in seeking diverse perspectives from women and bringing them to the table to help inform midwifery care.
