​Midwives are trusted, highly trained professionals who help pregnant women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Midwives may also provide a range of gynecological services to women of all ages, including annual exams and birth control methods.

What do Midwives do?

  1. Prenatal care: Midwives are experts in providing comprehensive prenatal care to expectant mothers. They monitor the health of both mother and baby, offering guidance on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices to promote a healthy pregnancy. They build strong relationships with their patients, ensuring trust and open communication throughout the pregnancy.

  2. Labour and delivery: During labour and delivery, midwives provide continuous support to women, offering comfort measures, pain relief techniques, and emotional reassurance. They monitor the progress of labour, assess foetal well-being, and guide mothers through the birthing process, ensuring a safe and positive experience.

  3. Postpartum care: Midwives continue to care for women and their newborns in the postpartum period. They assist with breastfeeding, monitor the physical and emotional recovery of the mother, and provide guidance on newborn care and bonding.

  4. Holistic approach: Midwives take a holistic approach to healthcare, focusing on the overall well-being of their patients. They emphasize the importance of informed decision-making, empowering women to make choices that align with their values and preferences.

  5. Collaboration: Midwives work collaboratively with obstetricians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to ensure the best possible care for their patients. They consult with specialists when necessary and refer patients for advanced medical interventions if complications arise.

  6. Education and counselling: Midwives provide education and counselling on a wide range of topics, from contraception to family planning and reproductive health. They offer emotional support and mental health guidance to help women navigate the challenges of motherhood.

While midwives have earned their place in the medical community as key members of a healthy pregnancy, they must meet certain requirements to become licensed.
