“I wish I could take the midwife home with me!” – well now you can!
I am a proud mum and step mum of five (now adult) children and a doting Nanna to grandson Cooper.
Qualifying as a Midwife in the UK, I gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of Midwifery care, in the home, in the community and in the hospital environment before emigrating to Australia in 2006.
Employed in both the public and private sector as a Clinical Midwife and Midwifery Educator, I have further developed and extended my skills in the profession and after rigorous screening and further study I have successfully received notation as an Eligible Midwife, which means I have a Medicare provider number and PBS prescriber number. This means that you can choose to receive midwifery care from me and Medicare rebates apply to my services.
I am happy to say that I can now offer more choice to women with their antenatal and postnatal care by a dedicated and experienced midwife with excellent support from the obstetricians and paediatricians here in Townsville. I am happy to work in collaboration with any obstetrician by referral. I work safely, within my scope of practice and refer when appropriate within a multidisciplinary team.
