A midwife is a highly skilled, trained professional who provides advice and care for expectant mothers. A midwife organises and carries out tests and scans during the pregnancy to check mother and baby are healthy. She offers advice and support at this time when an array of changes are taking place for the mother - to both her body and her feelings.

Closer to the due date, when the baby is ready to be born, the midwife organises the birth itself and is on hand in case the mother goes into labour. From the onset of labour the midwife is present to assist and advise the course of the birth itself, from helping the mother through her contractions to the delivering of the baby. The midwife reassures and calms the mother, whilst also ensuring that things are going smoothly.

Once the new baby has been born, the midwife will help the new mother to adjust. For example if she has difficulty in getting the baby to suckle, the midwife can advise and assist with her experience and knowledge. Further support and guidance is provided for the mother by the midwife whilst she recovers from her birth.

Their job is basically related to low risk pregnancies, child birth and postpartum stage. Women who are expecting to experience a natural birth are normally dealt by a mid-wife. One area of their job relates to the providing the women with primary health care information. We can say that Mid wife complements an obstetrician. They often work together for provision of healthy child bearing and delivery.

A midwife helps the mother and/or partner during the stages of pregnancy. He/she would work in the hospital, at clinic or in the mothers homes. It is a very rewarding job and I am looking into becoming a midwife myself.
