Right now, we - re looking for casual Midwifes for our maternity service that
provides primary and secondary care to women
in South Canterbury. This is hands-on midwifery work; we see around 600 births
a year, ranging from normal and low-risk to complex and high-needs.
You - ll provide ward-based
antenatal and postnatal care, and attend births. There - s also a certain amount
of administration work, with admissions, discharges, and patient notes, and you
might sometimes need to accompany patients to larger tertiary hospitals.
Welcome to a better career. In our smaller unit, you - re a midwife, a
support person, and an advocate for the women and babies in your care. You - ll
understand the emotional highs and lows that come with this transformative time
of their lives, and be able to develop a relationship where they trust and
connect with you. This is a role for a midwife with high professional
standards, who wants to provide a service you - re proud of.
You - ll be well-supported by the
rest of the staff. Our teams are self-led, which means that changes are made by
people on the floor, not in offices. We - re a collaborative team that works
closely to make sure our patients get the best outcomes, and that our work
environment is the best you could wish for.
As part of our 24/7 roster you
can expect to work some nights, where there are other responsibilities, such as
cleaning delivery suites. The core team at night also doesn - t include an
obstetrician, so you - ll need to quickly be able to read a situation and make a
fast decision about whether calling one in is indicated.
Why choose Te Whatu Ora -
As one of the country - s smaller districts our people always have room to
move and grow - you - ll get a wider exposure to specialties and enjoy the
benefits of a flat structure: processes that run smoothly and a fun, friendly
culture. With us, you - re more than just a number; you - re part of a team where
everyone knows your name. This is midwifery as you - ve always imagined
it. And if you - re ready to take on this very satisfying role and lifestyle,
then it - s time to take the opportunity.
