From the NT Branch Chair

We represent midwives working all across the NT – from the tertiary hospital maternity wards to the remote area midwives, from the tropics to the desert. Our four regional groups are based in Nhulunbuy, Katherine, Alice Springs (Mparntwe) and Darwin.
To stay in touch and share our stories and ideas we have a teleconference every month and local groups organise other catch ups and education sessions in between. We work together to respond to the needs and suggestions of midwives working in the NT.
We act to advocate for midwives, women and families, to arrange professional support and educational opportunities, and to inspire each other in the incredible but sometimes challenging work that we all do as midwives. For example, we offer scholarships to members to support them in accessing continuing professional development activities.
The NT is a unique place to live and work and our branch reflects this through our diversity, innovation and friendly collegiality.
