Susan Gaigulo

Midwife Specialist

The first time I stepped in the labour ward during my undergraduate studies I experienced something awesome; …… I fell in love with being a midwife and I just knew this was the place where my life purpose is.

I have passion to support & care for women during pregnancy, labour and birth. I believe that God placed me at the threshold to usher new born babies into the world. Being a midwife is magnificent, I enjoy teaching self-help while accompanying expectant parents in preparation for their infant.

I completed my Nursing Science degree in 2010 and went on to pursue a Masters degree in advanced Midwifery which I completed in early 2016. I have been working as a midwife since 2011 to date.

Willemien Kool

Midwife Specialist

I am a passionate midwife, living my dream job. I strive to provide evidence-based practice while still viewing pregnancy and birth as a normal, though life changing event; making me grateful for the privilege of working with unique women and all that they have to teach me as I walk with them through their journey to motherhood.

I completed my basic degree in 2010, whereafter I gained 5 years of experience in neonatal ICU at the maternity department of Steve Biko Academic Hospital. I have received my Masters degree in Advanced Midwifery early in 2018.

Olivia Venter


Birth is a sacred time in a woman’s life which is to be respected. I believe that in pregnancy and birth, a woman and her child, are to be cherished at all stages and to me this encompasses providing evidence-based care to my clients while following a gentle approach to birthing.

I believe the birthing process is a beautiful time for any woman that should be facilitated within her expectations, as well as supporting her through the journey into motherhood. Every time a baby is born a mother is also born. I strive to support women in their journeys of pregnancy and motherhood by acknowledging each women as an individual and providing care suited to each individual’s need. I believe women can be empowered through birth.
