Midwifery Q&A

What is midwifery? 

When most people hear the word ‘midwife,’ they think of a woman delivering babies, but the term actually means ‘with woman.’ These healthcare professionals generally work with women throughout the course of their reproductive years, particularly during pregnancy, labor, and postnatal care.

What services do midwives provide?

A midwife works in partnership with you to give you the necessary support, care, and advice you need. This care includes preventive measures and the promotion of a normal birth.

Midwives have an important role in health counseling, not only to you, but to your family as well. A midwife provides education on women’s reproductive health and helps prepare you for parenthood and childcare.
