I did my midwifery and nurse training at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, England – where Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge had their children! I have been a midwife for almost 30 years, working in urban and rural hospitals as well as birth centres in the UK, Abbotsford and the Comox Valley.  Several times a year I go up to Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet in the Arctic, to work and learn in their birthing centres. I have worked with Mother Theresa in Calcutta and spent 6 months cycling through Indonesia. My first degree was in Zoology from Cardiff, and following that I taught for 3 years in Fiji for VSO.


I have  a Master’s degree in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I have worked in Tanzania on a mentoring project with Tanzanian midwives.


I love canoeing, mountain biking and cross-country skiing and really enjoy working with mothers and their families.  I have 3 children, all boys, 2 of whom were born at home - all caught by midwives!


I am in awe of women. They are amazing! Their partners are often inspirational to me too. Looking forward to helping you to create your family, and honoured to receive your trust.
