Living in the eastern suburbs of Chch and need a Mid-Wife? Hi I'm Jan Johnston, and I'd love to help you throughout your pregnancy.
After going through my 'midwife crisis' and totally changing my career, I'm proud to say I have been happily working as a midwife since 2000.
I continue to feel privileged to be part of such a special time for women and their families. I believe in the midwifery partnership with women, and aim to enable women to make informed decisions for themselves and their baby. I am also excited to be a part of Shoreline Midwives with , Leianne and Lin. We have all worked together before and share similar philosophies and professional values. I conduct my antenatal clinics at the Burwood Birthing Unit, Burwood Hospital.
I am married with 3 sons; only 1 still living at home. We have a Wheaten Terrier called Speights and enjoy lots of beach walks with him. When I'm not working I enjoy reading and playing golf. Also hoping to do a lot more overseas travel in my twilight years.
Here's what's been said of me:
"I used Jan Johnston for our first pregnancy this year. She was incredibly helpful and friendly, very easy to talk to and ask questions. When it came time to go into labour we felt well prepared, although I don't know if that is entirely possible! Jan was great through the labour and we felt very safe and supported. In hindsight it was the care we got after our baby was born that was so important - that's when all the questions start. If Jan didn't have the answer she knew where to find it, or at least reassured us when we felt we were at our wit's end. I can't recommend Jan highly enough."
