Endorsed Midwife, BN, BM

Ms Heidi Karleusa has been a Latrobe Valley local for the past 25 years and a midwife for the past 12 years. Heidi has experience in all aspects of antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care.

Heidi is a passionate midwife who prides herself on providing woman centred antenatal care. She enjoys providing evidence based information to women empowering them to make informed choices regarding their pregnancy care and labour management.
