Meet the Midwifery Team
I was born in Whangarei, New Zealand, and have lived in Matamata since 1978. I have two adult sons who were both born here in Matamata.
I have been practising as an independent midwife since 2006 and have always had a passion for maternity care. Previous to getting my degree, I worked in Matamata as a maternity nurse aide for about 18 years.
Consequently, over these years I have become familiar with Matamata-Piako district families. This adds to the joy of working as a midwife in Matamata. I find myself supporting some of the women who I witnessed being born, now having their own babies. Wow, isn’t that really great.
I am very lucky to be working with an extremely supportive group of skilled and caring midwives. We provide primary maternity care by supporting women throughout their pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal period. This is a journey I have always felt a privilege to be a part of.
I look forward to meeting you and the future generation.
Greetings and congratulations! My name is Angela and I am the proud Mama of two grown up children. I was born and raised in the beautiful town of Te Aroha and now reside in the neighboring town of Matamata. I am proud to call this community my home. A highlight of my journey towards midwifery was my experience as a maternity aide at Pohlen Hospital before I commenced my midwifery degree. I believe it is an absolute privilege to provide care as a midwife in Aotearoa. I endeavor to provide optimal individualised midwifery care with kindness; within the collective of experienced Matamata midwives. I look forward to embracing new partnerships and promoting positive pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal journeys.
