Midwife experiance

Midwife Experience

Christina has been qualified for  18 years as a midwife.

During this time she has worked in various settings so that she has gained valuable experience as a self employed midwife.

Places of employment include; Waikato Hospital -in Delivery Suite, the antenatal & postnatal wards and for a while she worked in Delivery suite theatre as a 'scrub midwife' assisting with caesarian sections.
This was a different perspective of midwifery but Christina believes all experience is valuable and birth can have a broad range of outcomes despite best intentions.

She has also been a Staff Midwife at Hamiltons 2 lovely Birth Centres- Waterford and River Ridge so that her background has been a 'balanced' one between primary(normal) and secondary(more complicated) birthing.

Christina also has experience as a tutor at Wintec as a 'clinical skills' Tutor working with Midwifery students - which she greatly enjoyed.

Christina's style is warm and friendly, relaxed, but very proactive when a situation warrants action or consultation with specialists is required.
 
She has been self employed now as a LMC(lead maternity carer) for over 6 years.

This is a role Christina values and enjoys as care is individualised and she is able to work with women through the entire birth spectrum- during pregnancy, birth, and after baby is born up to 4-6 weeks.
