Five Elements - Shared Care Midwifery
Denise is a registered midwife and a recognised Shared Care provider collaborating with The Women’s Hospital. She provides antenatal care, sharing the care with The Women’s Hospital, allowing continuity of care. She has worked at The Women’s for 8 years and helps her clients navigate the maternity system from within. In that time, she’s developed great working relationships with the obstetric and midwifery teams and remains up to date with clinical practice guidelines and policies.
Being a midwife allows her to be a part of many women’s journeys, a sacred time and space – an opportunity she is very grateful and privileged to have. Her philosophy surrounding midwifery stems from her passion to promote and practice woman-centred care. She strongly believe it is a fundamental human right for women to have control of their own bodies and make informed decisions regarding their sexual and reproductive health. This includes the right to have choice and access to continuity of carer during their antenatal journeys
