Registered Midwife - Joan Kirner Women'S ...
Come and join our friendly, multi-disciplinary collaborative team to see your midwifery passion reignited, supported and encouraged!
Western Health is seeking passionate Midwives to join the dynamic Maternity Services team at Joan Kirner Women's & Children's (JKWC). Known for its strong midwifery culture and supportive environment, you will have the opportunity to flex your midwifery skills whilst working across the spectrum of maternity care.
Our dedicated Womens and Childrens tertiary-level facility stands 8 floors tall, proudly and passionately serving families of Melbournes western suburbs with quality and evidence-based care. The state-of-the-art facility with 26 large spacious birthing rooms with four having luxurious birthing pools makes women comfortable, secure and safe throughout their maternity experience.
Midwives are actively encouraged to up-skill, develop their critical thinking, take leadership roles and lead care planning with an emphasis on person-centred care. As a Registered Midwife (or Nurse/Midwife) you have the opportunity to work on rotation (or solely) across areas such as:
Maternity Assessment Centre (MAC)
Birthing Suite & High Care Unit (HCU)
Postnatal Maternity Wards
Incorporating elements of each department is our well-established continuity of care model- Midwifery Group Practice (MGP). Catering for approximately 14% of all birthing families at JKWCH, our MGP is the largest in Victoria.
Having recently expanded our service, we are now able to offer permanent, temporary and casual employment working in low-risk, all-risk or Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander (Galinjera) teams with the option of providing homebirth services.
