Bit about Me ...
Hi ! My name is Sue Holdom.
am an experienced midwife who lives in the country and together with
my midwifery partner Sheryl Wright provide
full midwifery care for woman in the North Waikato regions.
I am also
supported by Tui Lee &
Melissa Paekau-McBride to ensure you get the best
I believe good care requires partnership with women and their
'significant others', with clients being the decision makers, and my
job revolving around clinical care and education / information
I really enjoy watching women grow during their pregnancies - not
just physically (!!) but in terms of their knowledge, and confidence
that they will be the best mum it is possible to be, for their baby.
I provide antenatal care mostly in clinics in Huntly and Te Kauwhata
(at home if necessary, by negotiation), labour and birth care
(including water birth) at home, at Huntly Birthcare, or Waikato
Hospital (if complications develop).
All postnatal care is provided at home, no matter how remote that
may be, and good breastfeeding support is a priority for me.
