Kia ora, my name is Jemimah and I am a year one midwifery student studying through Otago Polytechnic. I live in Brooklyn, Wellington.


An important requirement for the course is that I "follow" women through their pregnancies.
There is no set way for how this is done.

If you choose to have me follow you, It can mean whatever you would like it to mean. I can be present as little or as much as you would like me to be - ideally I could be present at appointments and offer support as you get to know me.

I am looking for pregnant women due before the end of October if possible.

The arrangement is done formally through the Otago Midwifery course.

Please contact me if you are interested and I will pass your contact details to my kiako (teacher) who can talk to you about it. I would love to hear from you. My email is longjm1@student.op.ac.nz and my number is 0223262238
