Midwives and Pregnancy Nursing
Nurse-midwife training focuses on women's healthcare, especially pregnancy, birth, postpartum, new-born care, and gynaecology. Nurse midwife training promotes a non-interventional, individualized approach to normal pregnancy and birth, involving a certain amount of female education-an approach that often takes time.
Midwife is usually going to be:
- Check the health, growth and position of your baby.
- Advise or assist with hospital reservations and routine tests and inspections.
- Give you guidance and care.
- Help you get ready for labour and birth.
Through labour and birth, midwives will support you. They can:
- Give emotional support, encouragement and information.
- Monitor your growth and propose strategies to support your labour.
- Monitor the heartbeat of the baby and other signs.
- Offer pain relief or arrange to be given by a doctor.
- If necessary, get extra medical help.
