Tamara Ribble – Midwife

NOTE: Tamara is not currently booking new clients.  Watch this space for further updates.

Tamara hails from Canada and has been a resident of New Zealand since 2006. While completing her Bachelor of Midwifery degree here, she also had 3 children of her own, including a set of twins!

Prior to midwifery, Tamara was a birth doula and her experiences really highlighted the importance of not only providing woman centred care, but also family centred care as Tamara sees birth as an important experience for all family members.

While Tamara believes that pregnancy and birth are normal life events, she also understands that sometimes medical intervention and care are required and she enjoys caring for women who have high risk pregnancies equally as much as low risk women.

She will support your choice of birth location be it at home, in a local primary unit or at Christchurch Women’s Hospital.

One of her favourite parts of her role as a midwife is watching the developing relationship as parents become competent and confident in caring for their new baby.

Tamara keeps a small caseload and may be able to fit in clients who are late in booking a midwife.

Tamara prides herself on her attention to detail, and providing excellent support and care to the women she works with. Tamara has a good sense of humour and she really enjoys having fun with her clients.

In her spare time Tamara enjoys spending time with her 3 daughters and husband, reading, cooking and listening to music. She insists that eating bon bons on the couch with a glass of wine while watching Desperate Housewives is a hobby!
