Corli Roodt

With over 20 years of midwifery experience I have practiced midwifery in both private and public sectors.

I am passionate about professionalism, mentoring, safe staffing and, most importantly, quality midwifery care, at all times with the mother and baby(ies) at the centre of our care.

I am very excited to constantly witness such positive changes happening within our Women's area.
