This website is a resource to further strengthen our role, our visibility and the partnership between midwives and those who choose our care in the greater Auckland area. Our site refers specifically to the College of Midwives Auckland Region and is a valuable communication platform for members to follow the direction of our professional organisation, keep abreast of current information, education and continuing education, share news and views, and celebrate our many successes.
The Auckland Region Committee can be contacted via this site in relation to their role as representatives of the region regarding midwifery and consumer issues. The Auckland region has the highest number of births, consequently we have the greatest number of midwives working across the region. We are proud to live in, work in, and contribute to an incredibly diverse, youthful, multi-cultural population. Half those birthing identify with two or more ethnicities and around 10% have English as a second language.
For women we offer information about midwives and maternity services, a link to support networks, and opportunities to better understand how we, and our babies, fit into the New Zealand health system.
