As the country heads away on holiday, midwives around the country remain on call for women and whanau, the College of Midwives is asking people to sign their #backmidwives petition and share it over the Summer break.

New videos will be released in January and February next year and a preview has been made available today as part of the ongoing campaign.

The College launched the #backmidwives petition on December 3 and it has already attracted almost 13,000 signatures.

The petition calls on the Government to:

  • implement a revised funding model for community-based midwifery services
  • develop a dedicated organisation to support community-based midwives, and
  • implement fair and reasonable pay, for community-based midwives.

The petition is available to sign here and will run until 1st March 2020 (NZ Children’s Day).

You can send a postcard to MP’s and learn more about the petition here
