Welcome

Midwifery care tailored to suit your specific needs throughout your pregnancy, labour, birth & beyond



Welcome to my website! I hope you will find out a little more about me and my services and leave feeling inspired about the miracle of pregnancy and birth.


As a midwife I care for low-risk pregnant women throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and up to 6 weeks after birth. My services are comprehensive and include hiring and sales of certain maternity equipment. I am based in Port Elizabeth.


Being in private practice means I work independently of hospitals and doctors, referring women to and liaising with medical backup where necessary.


I am passionate about active, natural birth and love my job. It is such a pleasure to be part of the start of a little person and a treat to see women through such a special time in their lives!


A very big thank you to the wonderful people who have shared their special moments with me and now with you in their photographs…
Before you were conceived


‘Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born
I loved you
Before you were here an hour
I would die for you
This is the miracle of life.’

Maureen Hawkins
