Midwifery Council Approved Continuing Education & Professional Activities Hours

Book now for up to 6 hours of breastfeeding-related education, available New Zealand-wide via Zoom, and in Canterbury through group Workshops or as a part of your practice meetings. I offer plenty of flexibility so don’t worry if life or work disrupts your plans to join us on the day. 

Suitable for all health professionals and others who want to increase their skills and knowledge and better support the breastfeeding families in their care; from students to Consultants, from Childbirth Educators to Lead Maternity Care Midwives, core Midwifery and ward staff, and even General Practitioners and Medical Centre staff.

There are three Workshops delivering 2 hours each of approved Midwifery Education:

  • Understanding Breastfeeding
  • Supporting Breastfeeding
  • Breastfeeding Case Studies

These Workshops cover a range of topics and have themes that lead on from each other; they may offer a refresher of knowledge from the past or something new, and sometimes we find we didn’t know what we don’t know.
