Jo Ryde (Registered Midwife)

Jo Ryde

I enjoy working with women and their families at this special, important time in their lives. I view birth as a normal process and see my role as supporting women to listen to their bodies and develop trust in their ability to birth their babies.

Over the past 18 years I have worked primarily with women choosing to birth at home and Lincoln, Burwood and St George’s birthing units. I also have a lot of experience with waterbirths.

I have three sons, Wiari, Taitoko, and Turiariki, two of whom were born at home.
