Māori Midwifery Workforce in Aotearoa

Last week, Rapua Te Aronga-a-Hine, the first comprehensive literature review of the Māori midwifery workforce in Aotearoa New Zealand was released. The review uncovered layers of barriers that are inhibiting the growth and advancement of Māori midwives within the health and tertiary education sectors, and opportunities to achieve revolutionary change.

The literature review was the first step to understanding the Māori midwifery landscape, the nuances of all frontline workforces.

Rapua te Aronga-a-Hine: The Māori Midwifery Workforce in Aotearoa. A Literature Review – February 2020

 

Rapua Te Aronga-a-Hine is the first comprehensive literature review of the Māori midwifery workforce in Aotearoa New Zealand. The review uncovers layers of barriers that are inhibiting the growth and advancement of Māori midwives within the health and tertiary education sectors, and opportunities to achieve revolutionary change.

Te Rau Ora in partnership with Ngā Māia Trust and Counties Manukau Health are working together to develop an evidence base to inform Māori workforce development priorities with a focus on Māori women, babies, children and whānau. The evidence base will help identify professional development needs, ensure a spotlight on indigenous health, and build a culturally appropriate professional Māori health workforce.

The literature review is the first step to understanding the Māori midwifery landscape, the nuances of all frontline workforces, that for Māori, help us to ‘Celebrate, Demonstrate, Mobilise, Unite’ in the International Year of the Midwife 2020.’
