About Me

Kia ora. I’m Justine Whitfield.

I’m 47 years old and the mother of two mostly grown children. I work as an accountant in aviation and I spent many years as a social researcher. As both a chartered accountant and a researcher, I am bound by strict professional codes of ethics. I also have a personal understanding of this topic. As a seventeen year old, I terminated a pregnancy. I did not regret this but I understand abortion is not always a simple decision.

Your story is in safe, kind and experienced hands. Please share it with me.

An Acknowledgement

The late Celia Lashlie once wrote to me encouraging me with an idea I had for a project similar to this. I was too busy to pursue it. Thank you for that support, Celia — I am finally doing something about it.


My thanks also to Stephanie Robertson for listening to my story when I was finally ready to tell it.
