Te Aroha a Hine: Maori Midwifery Workforce

Te Aronga a Hine was a collaborative between Nga Maia, Te Rau Ora and Counties Manukau Health supported by the Ministry of Health (Workforce) that was focused on building the evidence base to inform the workforce required to centre on the health needs of Wahine Māori and their whānau.

These reports were the final two steps to understanding the Māori midwifery landscape. It provides evidence with the qualitative descriptions, views, and Mātauranga (knowledge) from Māori māma and Māori midwives who have experienced the maternity care system in New Zealand and who also come with knowledge from the past which has shaped their outlook of maternity care today.
