Midwifery Care

The midwife is a profession of supporting the women in childbirth. A midwife provides care to women during pregnancy and birth and some also provide primary care related to reproductive health. This care includes the gynaecological examination, contraceptive counselling, promotion of normal birth, accessing medical care, detection of complication in mother and child and delivery care. Midwives have knowledge of reproductive education in nutrition, fertility, contraception, breastfeeding, pregnancy health, and quality infant care. The midwife also has important roles in education and health counselling not only for the women but also for the family and community. As primary care services are currently lacking many developing countries are investing the money and training for midwives and other community health workers.
