The Counties Manukau District has an ethnically diverse population which makes us one of the most diverse health care providers in Australasia. Our service is unique with over 7400 births per year and has a strong midwifery focus.  This makes working here exciting and rewarding as you have a real influence in the future of New Zealand.

On-going guidance from dedicated senior midwives, our team of midwife educators and midwifery clinical coaches, and the Counties Manukau / AUT Midwifery Development and Education Service (MDES) ensures a supportive environment, facilitating your transition to a confident practitioner.
