My name is Merete Arnøy. I was born in Bryne, but have now settled in Stavanger with my husband and two children. For as long as I can remember I´ve been fascinated by the ”miracle of life” and already as a little girl I knew I was going to be a midwife.
In 1999 I was a fully trained nurse and worked at the hospital in Stavanger for a couple of years. Then I left for Tromsø to start my education in midwifery ,which I finished in January 2004. After working a year at the hospital in Bergen, I moved back to Stavanger and SUS, where I worked in the maternity ward.
In 2012 I took a specialized course in medical sonography at the University of Trondheim ( NTNU). Until the summer of 2015 I worked both in Fødeloftet and the outpatients´clinic of the maternity ward in SUS (Stavanger University Hospital).
