Rebecca, founder of Heart and Hands

Rebecca is an experienced Midwife based in Auckland, New Zealand. She began her career 14 years ago in the United Kingdom as a Labour and Birthing Suite Midwife before relocating to New Zealand in search of a more woman centered model of care. 

She has extensive knowledge and experience in women's health and newborns. She has practiced as a Lead Maternity Carer in Auckland and is now a Clinical Charge Midwife at Auckland City Hospital. She is a certified Lactation Consultant and a specialist in Neuroprotective Developmental Care of newborns.

Rebecca's vision is to provide the scaffolding a new family need to create the building blocks for your child’s lifelong health and wellness, through tailored Lactation Consultancy Services, Birth Trauma Counselling, Newborn Sleep Issues, gentle parenting solutions, and more.

"I am committed to providing access to free resources and education and a supportive environment for mothers to establish and maintain successful breastfeeding journeys."
