Kōrero mō te tūranga – About the role

We have an exciting opportunity to join our theatre midwifery team whose focus is the delivery of an excellent birthing experience for pregnant people who require operative births.

Our Theatre Midwives work AM and PM shifts across our maternity floor from Monday to Friday with one or two weeknight on-call shifts per week. They have a focus on enabling the timely provision of both elective and emergency caesarean sections, but the role is sufficiently variable to enable you to practice across your scope. You will receive additional education and orientation relevant to working in the operating theatre environment.

We are person focused and aim to provide personalised, state-of-the-art care to pregnant people. On average five babies are born in the Hutt Valley every day and we provide primary and secondary maternity care for about 1800 pregnant people a year in the Hutt Valley.
