Auburn Hospital provides comprehensive midwifery-led care for low-risk women and their families, delivering family-centred care to an array of culturally and linguistically diverse women. Auburn midwives work collaboratively with the obstetric and gynaecology team, interpreters, bilingual health care workers, physiotherapy and social work to provide inclusive and individualised care for women and their families.
Approximately 1,500 women birth at Auburn Hospital each year, and this number is steadily increasing. MidStart students working at Auburn Hospital will have the opportunity to work in all areas of maternity services, including Antenatal Clinic, Birth Unit, Postnatal Ward, Newborn Care and our Community Midwifery Unit. Due to the small and low risk nature of our facility, MidStart students will have the unique opportunity to develop core midwifery skills in normal birth, working to develop as independent practitioners in a supportive and nurturing environment.
At Auburn, we work closely with students and their universities to support professional growth and development of all students. MidStart students at Auburn will have exciting opportunities to participate in current research projects being undertaken at Auburn Hospital Maternity Services, which may include the use of sterile water injections in labour, management of anaemia in pregnancy, and piloting research into impacts of birth environment design on mobility in labour. Students will also be provided with an array of clinical and theoretical learning opportunities, including regular in-services, while providing exceptional midwifery care to women through the antenatal, intrapartum and postpartum continuum.
