  • Thank you very much for your comment. I don't know how well I got it over without sounding white, middle class and judgmental. The point is: The women of Gisborne were/are wonderful and they taught me to re-evaluate who/what I am. I will always be grateful for that.

  • Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for sharing your life as a midwife in Gisy. Just a thought to share from me to non-Maori. What is considered poor to you may not necessarily be poor to me? We were, are and will always be the creators of our own destiny.
