Welcome to the NZ College of Midwives, Wellington Region

The New Zealand College of Midwives (NZCOM) is the professional organisation and recognised ‘voice’ for midwives in New Zealand. NZCOM represents over 2000 members and works in partnership with maternity consumer groups and individual women to ensure high quality maternity and midwifery services in New Zealand.

The Wellington Region is comprised of midwives from Wellington, Hutt Valley, Kapiti Coast and the Wairarapa.

We currently have approximately 350 members and are committed to supporting midwives to provide quality care for women in our region.

​We encourage consumer support and participation in our College, midwifery is a partnership with women. We fully realise how important our student midwives are to our future, and offer a great student support package.

We send out an electronic newsletter approximately once a month. This provides feedback from events and information on future issues. If you are a financial member of the national organisation, NZ College of Midwives, and you have supplied them with your email address, then you should receive this the next month after your membership payment.
