Welcome to NurtureNZ

Vida RyeI am a passionate advocate for physiological birth and my home business, NurtureNZ, has grown organically from the paid and voluntary work that I was doing amongst the birthing community within Wellington. My journey with birth so far has taught me so much, from my first training as a doula back in the UK through to the wonderful birth experiences of having my own 2 baby girls here in NZ at home, in water with the support of fantastic midwives.

Now as a Calmbirth® practitioner I feel I have finally found my true calling. It brings together all that I have learned and experienced in birth and I am compelled to share this knowledge and these techniques.
