The Wellness Committee aim to provide support, in whatever form is required, to individual Canterbury/West Coast New Zealand College of Midwives (NZCOM) regional members. This could be in the form of peer to peer debriefing, mentoring, financial hardship grants or support in the situation of an unexpected outcome or gifts.

We hope that individual members feel supported by the midwifery community through times of stress and hardship and also aim to strengthen collegial relationships throughout the midwifery community.

The current membership consists of 4 LMC midwives however the Terms of Reference for the committee requires us to have a membership of 5 and it would be ideal to have a core midwife on this group. We ensure that confidentiality of members and issues is always upheld.

Meetings happen as needed depending on requests for support. If you are interested in joining the committee then please email us.

Please email us if you know of a colleague that is experiencing hardship. All issues are held in the strictest of confidence.
