Hi, I'm Lisa and I feel really lucky to be able to give back to the community where I live. As a Caseload Midwife with Country Health SA, in the beautiful town of Gawler, I've found a place and a role that presents me with many opportunities to do something special for the women and families around me. Mine is a story of professional satisfaction and personal reward
Julie — Testimonial
I'm Julie and I've found a place where I do more of the work I love. My job title is Midwife, but at Country Health SA I get to do more than assist at births. From forging great, long-lasting relationships to being there when women need support, before during and after pregnancy, I'm using all of the skills I have. Continuity of Care has let me have a profound impact on many people's lives. It's why I'm passionate about what I do. If you feel the same, discover more about my life and work.
