Access Gateway Hub
My journey into Midwifery was by total accident. When visiting family friends on the Maternity Ward’s, I would always pass by the little windows where they “kept the babies” (Old School Nursery’s). That was it, I desperately wanted to work into THAT room and cuddle babies. So off into Midwifery I went! My goodness I was wrong about that job, but I found something so much better. Standing bedside women, supporting, educating, guiding and advocating for them became my utter devotion.
Working in Midwifery Group Practice (MGP) is a dream most midwife’s have, fresh out of university. I was lucky enough for this opportunity to present itself early on in my career. Working with the Non-English-Speaking Refugee group is an exciting and challenging role where we are exposed to a rainbow of different cultures, beliefs and practices, each beautiful and individual. The refugee status of most of our women, means we assist in helping them navigate the Australian Healthcare system and assist them in becoming the leaders of their health and wellbeing. I truly believe that the continuity of care of model we work within provides the best outcomes and experiences to empower our women and their families.
I believe we are creating strong women, strong babies and strong families.
And yes… I do get to cuddle very cute babies now and then!
