Midwifery

Midwifery provides nurturing, hands-on care for mothers and infants before, during, and after birth. It is a traditional, woman-centered, empowering model of maternity care that is utilized in all the countries of the world, whether practiced in private homes, birth centers, clinics, or hospitals. Midwives are trained professionals specializing in pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and postpartum care. They support women with individualized prenatal care and education, assistance during labor and delivery, and care of newborns, monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother/birthing parent throughout the childbearing process. Through personalized care, a midwife is a skilled, knowledgeable, and trusted provider who helps women and families make informed and confident decisions to facilitate a healthy and safe childbirth, minimizing technological interventions. A midwife can also collaborate with obstetricians, pediatricians, and other specialists in the rare case where medical care for mother or baby is needed. Listening to clients, sharing knowledge, facilitating decision making, and supporting women and families in the process of birthing their babies safely, naturally, and with confidence, is the core of midwifery.
