We birth around 1200 babies every year and work very closely together with the LMC’s to ensure that both mother and baby get the level and type of care that they deserve. We are currently looking for an experienced midwife with a commitment to quality care, who embodies the Southern DHB values, Kind, Open, Positive and a Sense of Community in all that they do.


About you

You will be using your valuable midwifery experience to provide the very best possible care to our women and babies as they set out on together in their new journey.

The Southern DHB rewards these qualities with opportunities for personal and professional development, providing an environment that enables the maternity team to support each other and work together to achieve the best possible patient outcomes.


We have some flexibility in the FTE we can offer you, and our team covers a variety rostered shifts.


If you have the skills we are looking for and are looking for a role where you can really make a difference to the experience of women and their families at a time of great change, we would be delighted to hear from you!
