Jo Wihongi (Registered Midwife)

Jo Wihongi

Kia Ora and congratulations! I work with the wonderful Rātā Midwives here in Ōtautahi/Christchurch. We all share the philosophy that childbirth is normal.   Because of this, we support well women and their whānau to birth in the primary care setting, be it at home or primary birthing unit, in or out of water!
My aim is to provide holistic, evidenced based care, adjusting care plans according to individual need, which includes referral to the appropriate people if and when required. I view my role as being one of support, information sharing and advocacy to empower you to make informed, confident decisions that are best for you, your pēpi and your whānau during this new journey you are embarking on!

If you feel I may be the right fit for you please include my name in your enquiry!
