Welcome to the Howick Midwife website, a source of information for women, midwives and students.
My name is Nimisha and on this site you will also find information about my philosophy of midwifery care and other midwifery topics.
For me midwifery is a way of life and I believe birth for majority of women is a normal physiological process that usually requires little intervention. However, if there were any concerns I would not hesitate to suggest a referral to a specialist. I believe that all relevant information should be given to make sound decisions during the childbirth experience. My practice is to work in partnership with woman and family/whanau as I believe it is important to include as much as possible the people that the woman wishes to have around at this special time. I am committed to ensuring that the woman I provide care to have the best pregnancy and birth experience.
I trained as a midwife in the UK and was working as a Senior Midwifery Lecturer before moving to NZ in 1996. I work part time as Senior Midwifery Lecturer at Auckland University of Technology and have a small caseload as an LMC (Lead Maternity Carer). I am one of the expert advisors for the NZCOM, a member of competency review panel for the Midwifery Council and have been a reviewer for NZCOM Midwifery Standards Review till 2009 and NZCOM educator for the Midwifery First Year Practice (MFYP) till 2011. Currently I am an Academic member of the Ministry of Health (MOH) Compliance panel to monitor the Code in New Zealand.
In my LMC practice I have the privilege to work with two-three wonderful midwives who back me up. During pregnancy the women I care for have the opportunity to meet the midwife who is going to be the back up. I am also privileged that I work with great midwifery and other colleagues within the facility who help to ensure that the care for the woman I am involved in is seamless.
