BEHIND THE BRAND
The Mother-Daughter Duo,
Who believes every woman can have the Pregnancy,
Birth, and Postpartum Journey she desires.
Rangimarie grew up and trained in the Northland of New Zealand, Whangarei. She is the second eldest of 10 children and often times had majority of the responsibility raising her younger siblings. In her early 20s with one child present, she decided to become a Registered Nurse. Very quickly after graduating and becoming qualified, she realised she wanted to be at the other end of the spectrum and being involved with new life.
By this point she had a second child, and a third on the way. She stepped out of the norm, and had her very own Home Birth 28 years ago, bringing Bonnie into the world.
Since then she has had 3 more children added to her family and has become a Private Midwife who has three decades worth of experience birthing babies and caring for women. She has worked in public hospitals, private settings, across multiple cultural environments and countries. Roughly equating to over one thousand births!
Her life now consists of 8 grandchildren and counting, while aiding women in having the birth they desire and empowering them to trust their bodies to bring their babies into this world.
Bonnie is a qualified Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist. Majority of her life has been spent pursuing endeavours that involved the human body. She has danced in various disciplines for 16 years, but then transitioned to the gym scene where she learnt about the mechanics of the human body. She became pregnant, shifting her focus again.
With an already keen interest in the body and how it functioned on an everyday level, this new journey of pregnancy caused her to become interested in the changes that took place within her own body at this specific period of time.
Her main focus is now her 2 children and bringing Unina to a world of pregnant women, where she can provide products that will enhance and simplify areas of the motherhood journey.
