midwifery subject

You will be the go-to for women during pregnancy, labour, birth and for several weeks after. You will provide support and advice during one of the biggest milestones in a woman’s life. As a midwife your days will be spent educating women on pregnancy, birth and parenting, organising and discussing ultrasounds and blood tests, referring to other specialists when necessary, prescribing medication for labour, examining and caring for newborn babies and advising on breastfeeding, immunisations, contraception and general mother and baby health.

You will graduate with an internationally recognised qualification and the knowledge needed to own your own business as a midwife.

Your study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. You will have the chance to care for women and their babies and learn about the midwifery profession through applying classroom learning in practice. Our dedicated and experienced staff will be there to guide you every step of the way.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements to the courses, we offer Te Ara Pūtake My Academic Pathway (Health Pathway) that will help prepare you for enrolment in the programme.
