The New Zealand College of Midwives (NZCOM) is the professional organization and recognized 'voice' for midwives in New Zealand. NZCOM represents over 2000 members and works in partnership with maternity consumer groups and individual women to ensure high quality maternity and midwifery services in New Zealand.
The Otago Region is comprised of midwives from Dunedin, Central Otago, Oamaru & Balclutha and students. We currently have approximately 127 members and are committed to supporting midwives to provide quality care for women in our region.
We encourage consumer support and participation in our College. We fully realize how important our student midwives are to our future, and offer a great student support package.
We send out a newsletter approximately once a month for 10 months of the year. This provides feedback from events and information on future issues.
Our meetings are held once a month and vary the days and venues to try and ensure that they are accessible to both community and hospital midwives.
We look forward to meeting you
