Te Maunga Taphui

Te Maungā Tapuhi - “Ma te huruhuru, ka rere te manu” was the project of Ngā Manukura midwifery graduates, Heather Muriwai and Katarina Komene. The project was designed to increase the quality and cultural safety of Māori Midwifery students experience at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) throughout their degree programme, while also strengthening the existing Māori midwifery community as we come together to support each other and the students.

“My job is to plant the seeds of knowledge and, if we reclaim control of our birthing experience, then everything else will flow.” Heather Muriwai, midwife
