Midwife Mediator faciliates staff / management communication. We do this by being omnipartial and listening to each party to hear the concerns and test the information with reality based open questions. We use our extensive knowledge of birthing facilities. We have mediated in large university teaching hospitals and small private birth centres. The issues are often involving the need for greater inclusion and communication between staff and management. Being listened to by a mediator creates momentum to move forward to reaching even partial agreements with the management that can be built on later. Contact us for a free assessment.

One of the tricks is to be OMNIPARTIAL. That means to be on all sides. To tell parties you will listen to them and then you will also listen and support the other party to help them both / all reach agreement. Omnipartial is more honest than attempting to be impartial. Parties readily accept that you will be on all sides.

I studied law then postgraduate mediation and took cases throughout my clinical practices in the UK New Zealand /Aotearoa, Australia, Europe & Asia. I worked in family mediation helping parents and children find agreements. I worked with healthcare employment and regulatory conflicts. Like many, I grew up in a family of conflict. I was born at home as the first twin with a second surprise identical twin to follow. This gave my mother five under five years old at twenty five years of age in a new country, with no money, with my father away at sea working for a year. Understandably, a stressful situation that led to conflicts. (We explore the psychology of conflict later). This familiarity with conflict initially led to my recreating it through challenges to authority and hierarchy and then becoming more comfortable with conflict I began working with others to resolve their issues. I became a family mediator to save others from family conflict. That was after many years experiences with the family courts as a litigant in person (LIP) with mixed success for my own children. I had studied law then developed this with postgraduate law and mediation studies along with professional mediation accreditation then training and contract work with the ministry of justice. With a natural sense of fair play and justice I was often called upon to resolve conflicts in and outside the workplace. I worked with Employment Tribunals representing healthcare workers. Often these cases were about safety at work. When they included whistleblowers who raised safety concerns they would be treated to malicious allegations and referred to their regulatory authority: In the UK that is the The Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC). I have always wished to improve systems by learning from mistakes and find reasonable practical solutions. So often the focus can be on the problem rather than solution or simply being stuck in a dysfunctional system that doesn't know how to change. I first had experiences with employment law and then I had ten years of family law courts that led me to study mediation. The courts are slow, impersonal and my experiences showed how ‘slow justice is no justice’ . I wanted to use my experiences to help other families not go to court, to maintain their relationships and find communication strategies that help them resolve their own conflicts. Why did I wish to resolve conflicts? Because Relationships Matter. This idea is explored well in the book by Gordon Nuefeld and Gabor Mate ‘Hold Onto Your Children’ and developed here in the context that all relationships matter. This concept explores how we relate at work with each other as consumers and colleagues. We are affected by each other including other conflicts. Just as a butterfly in Tokyo can affect the weather in New York so can resolving relationship trauma in one area bring healing across the earth. "A gentle birth heals mother earth"
