Many believe there is no big difference between a midwife and a common nurse, except that midwifes are specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology and responsible for midwifery practice. (Midwifery practice is impressive enough!) In fact, a midwife’s duties are wider than we can imagine, and midwife is considered one of the most important positions who bears the biggest responsibility when a family is expecting a new life.
Midwifes start their work with every mother from the beginning of their pregnancy through the postpartum period, until parents are ready to take full responsibility for raising their child They explain the physiological and psychological health status from pregnancy to delivery and to the postnatal period in prenatal lectures to reassure the mothers-to-be, and provide them with advice for pregnancy, delivery and postnatal period.
When a new life is born, a midwife has to conduct the delivery and take care of the newborn baby independently. After a baby is born, a midwife needs to assist every family to shoulder parental responsibilities, impart some practical knowledge such as bathing the baby and shaping the body after delivery.Interested in this industry?
