All New Zealand midwives participate in a two or 3 yearly Standards Review which is a requirement of the New Zealand Midwifery Council as part of midwive's annual recertification. During the review process midwives are asked to reflect and comment on the feedback they have been given. So I will invite you to participate in this feedback process.

At the completion of your maternity care your midwife will provide you with feedback forms and a stamped envelope which are mailed to:

Midwifery Standards Review Administrator

PO Box 21059, Edgeware

Christchurch 8143
