Experience a dynamic and rewarding career in midwifery. Midwives share the journey from pregnancy to parenthood with women and their families.
Midwifery means ‘with woman’. Midwives work with women and families, sharing knowledge and experience reciprocally, acknowledging each woman’s unique culture, values and experiences. Midwives practice within many models and settings to care for women and their families at a very significant time in their lives.
Develop and enrich your midwifery career with support from a range of NSW Health scholarships for postgraduate studies for midwives.
NSW Health promotes multiple models of care to support women, babies and midwives. Midwifery continuity of care models enable midwives to work to their full scope of practice and develop meaningful relationships with the women they care for.
There are two pathways to becoming a registered midwife:
GradStart is the NSW Health graduate recruitment program for registered midwives who have completed the Bachelor of Midwifery.
MidStart is the career pathway for registered nurses to become midwives. It offers paid employment while postgraduate midwifery studies are completed.
