Jo Wihongi

Kia Ora and congratulations! I work with the wonderful Rata Midwives. We all share the philosophy that birth is normal, as such, we support well women and their whānau to birth in the primary care setting, be it home or a primary birthing unit, in or out of water!
My aim is to provide holistic, evidenced based care, adjusting care plans according to individual need, including referral to the appropriate people if and when required. I view my role as being one of support and advocacy and to provide you with the tools to make informed, confident decisions that are best for you,  your baby and your whānau, during this life changing journey you are embarking on!
