Registered Midwives

Big changes are happening at Hutt Valley DHB

In your midwifery practice, isn’t everything you do about getting the best outcomes for everyone? It’s the same for us. So this year, we made the choice to review how to ensure that.

Now we’ve committed to growing our maternity resources. With more midwives, we can provide the level of care we all want to.  

You’ll be valued

We want your expertise now. You can look forward to a positive working environment, where people are comfortable with each other and where we treat each other with respect and kindness.

You’ll work with an enthusiastic and empathetic team who just want to do what’s right for women and babies – so you should fit right in.

We’re open to change

As a smaller DHB, you’ll find very low barriers to innovation. Have a good idea? Let’s try it out. We’re already working on ways to improve community outcomes – and if this is something you’re interested in, we’ll eagerly hear your ideas.

Are you ready to develop your professional practice?

There are all kinds of ways you can do this:

  • In the wards
  • In clinics
  • Community midwifery
  • Advancement to senior roles

Ready to take the first step?

And now it’s time to experience Hutt Valley DHB for yourself, and see just where your midwifery career could go.
