Puja gained her Bachelor of Health Science (Midwifery) and commenced LMC practice within South/East Auckland, where she has been a practising midwife for two years. Supporting women through their maternity experience initiated her interest in complexities within pregnancy and providing secondary care. She has been a core midwife at Middlemore hospital for the past year, primarily based in a high-risk antenatal ward. During this time, she has been able to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Science (Midwifery). She is currently working towards further Postgraduate studies and has a keen research interest to inform practice further and improve outcomes.
