“I’m an experienced midwife who loves her work and life. My goal is to make you feel welcome, well informed and supported”.

Your Midwife: Tui Lee

Rural midwife based in the North Waikato with 9 years experience

As a woman, mother and passionate midwife, I look at caring for you as more than just a job. Whether you are a first time mum or having your third baby, helping you on your birthing journey is the greatest privilege.

My focus is to provide safe midwifery care, to support you and your family to have a positive experience. I bring a balanced approach of professionalism and warmth to your care.

An essential part of my role is to provide you with information about your pregnancy and your options so you can make informed choices for yourself.

Most pregnancies are straightforward and uncomplicated, but there are times when extra care is needed. I work collaboratively with your GP, Waikato Hospital Obstetric Team and local support agencies if and when needed to ensure you’re always in the best hands.
