Find your calling as a Medecins Sans Frontieres midwife

New Zealand nurse Janine Issa, 59, found her calling as a Médecins Sans Frontières midwife. Trained as a nurse (1969-1972) at New Zealand’s Auckland Public Hospital, Janine worked in her home town before travelling and working in England and India. She returned to NZ in 1977 and the following year came to Australia where she trained as a midwife at the former Crown Street Hospital, the site of Sydney’s first natural birth centre.
