Hi there. Thanks so much for taking the time to find out a little bit more about me! Just to make it easier for you – you pronounce my name E-Lee-Sha but you are most welcome to call me Elle.

I live on the Hibiscus Coast with my husband and our three children. I love being a Mum, but don’t get me wrong, it has come with it’s fair share of challenges but it is truly the greatest gift that I have ever been given.

From my earliest memories as a young girl, I was obsessed about babies. Inspired by my best friends Mum who was a Karitane Nurse, I decided at 6 years old that I was going to be a Midwife.

I chose to train as a Registered Comprehensive Nurse first, completing my degree in 1996. I then worked as a Paediatric Nurse before gaining a position as a Postnatal Nurse at Birthcare Auckland, prior to commencing my study to become a Midwife. Once I graduated in 1998, I continued to work at Birthcare as a Registered Midwife. This is when I found my passion in supporting mums with breastfeeding.  

Every family has its challenges and though they can be tough at the time, they can send us on a new journey, and this is how Baby Bliss was born. One of our children was diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness so Baby Bliss has given me the flexibility to be able to focus solely on  my daughter during the times when she is unwell. 

I have always been passionate about educating and caring for mothers and babies and it is such a privilege to be able to share such a precious time in peoples lives. I really hope that you will enjoy being a mother as much as I have and I wish you all the very best on your parenting journey.
