Sarah’s proud of helping our community grow

Caboolture midwifery graduate Sarah Mathes

Working at Caboolture Hospital was always a first choice for recent midwifery graduate Sarah Mathes.

“I spent three years as a student midwife at Caboolture Hospital and I really wanted to be a part of,” Sarah said.

“I worked very hard and fought to gain a graduate position here.

“The Caboolture Maternity Unit welcomes about 2000 babies per year and has a great reputation in the community, which I like as well.”

Sarah undertook three years of study to become a Registered Midwife.

“The one year graduate midwifery program has provided a foundation for the rest of my career,” she said.

“For me, it’s not about machines and technology, it’s about personal care; being with women and families is what I love.

“Midwifery is a very big part of who I am, it’s not just what I do.”
