As long as there is love in the world there will be work for a midwife!
The midwife instructs, monitors, provides care and gives advice to women during pregnancy and delivery, in the postnatal period and in case of gynaecological problems; has responsibility for managing the delivery; takes care of and monitors newborns and infants; conducts health education and family planning at individual, family and societal levels.
A midwifery qualification recognises the competence of the graduate to practice as a midwife as well as a general nurse. The midwife is an independent practitioner, and the profession is regulated by EU directives. The duration of study is 4.5 years.
