Kaya. I have been a midwife for 16 years, and am also a Lactation Consultant and nurse .I am a mum of four beautiful daughters, with 18 years between the youngest and the oldest! Community midwifery is my passion, and I have worked in Australia and New Zealand. I come from a big family with four sisters and three brothers, plus step mums and step dads. From my own experience, I understand that family life can sometimes difficult and sad, and sometimes easy and happy. Because of this, I love to support mums, children and families to thrive. I work from a woman-centred midwife perspective and believe that strong women make a strong society and culture.
