Tēnā koutou katoa. Ko Tauhara te maunga. Ko Taupō te roto. Ko Ngāti Pākehā te iwi Ko Tania Fleming taku ingoa. He wahine whakawhānau taku mahi.
I have been a midwife for 24 years, during this time I have worked as a rural LMC, in youth sexual and reproductive health, midwifery unit manager of a birthing unit and the last 10 years in midwifery education. I completed my PhD in 2019 which focused on Cultural Safety for midwives.
I am excited about joining the Aotearoa Midwifery project and this opportunity to be part of a team that is future proofing midwifery in Aotearoa. Building on the amazing work already done by working towards a Te Tiriti Honouring framework for midwifery competencies, standards and scope of practice.
