Registered Midwives / Kaiwhakawhānau Rēhita

Nau mai, haere mai ki whanau ora ki Te Awakairangi

Location: Hutt Hospital

Contract: Permanent - part and full time opportunities

Do you love being a midwife, embrace caring for women, value continuous improvement and innovation, thrive in a team-based environment, and are eager to be part of a team recognized for its quality of care,…………… then we have an outstanding opportunity for you!


We have some big changes happening which include a large scale refurbishment of our maternity and birthing unit as well as the opportunity through an increase in FTE to take on more midwives. This will allow us to offer our midwives many options for career development and a superior quality of care for our mothers, their babies and whanau in our community.

Hutt Maternity is a patient focused practice providing personalized, state-of-the-art medical care to women. On average five babies are born in the Hutt Valley every day and we provide primary and secondary maternity care for about 1800 women a year in the Hutt Valley.

Our midwifery unit functions much like an extended family, with work-life balance being extremely important to all of our staff. We are committed to providing a competitive schedule that most private and public organisations are unable to offer.

Some new initiatives taking place include:

  • Comprehensive bespoke new graduate midwife programme
  • Developmental opportunities for all members of the team that are individualised depending on need and specific areas of interest
  • Bespoke return to midwifery practice support
  • Opportunities to expand your midwifery skills across the scope of practice and in different areas i.e. theatre, outpatient clinic and community
  • Quality and Leadership Program (QLP)
  • New flexible shift patterns allowing quality work life balance

If you share our commitment to innovative and personalised care, we’d love to talk with you, we also welcome visits to our unit from interested registered midwives.
