  1. Hello, I am a midwifery student in Australia and I am currently stugying traditional Maori birthing practices. I was wondering if you had any hand outs that you maybe able to email to me that would help with my research?

  2. I’m a Maori mother of 4, I have had all my babies at Auck hosp, all smooth deliveries but would love to know about Maori birthing practices. Where is the venue and can anybody join? Thank-you
