Midwife’s occupation is responsible and demanding. The work of a midwife is people-oriented, and the days and customers are constantly varying. Midwife is an expert on sexual and reproductive health of women of all ages. They work in hospitals, delivery rooms, outpatient clinics, maternity clinics and as entrepreneurs.
Midwives ‘ work is often seen as work with women who are pregnant, in labour or who have recently given birth and people close to them. But it is so much more than just working with fertile women. Midwives counsel customers of various ages about matters related to sexual health and act as experts in female health and gynecology. They execute cancer treatments, assist in operations, work with infertility patients and much more.
Midwives’ work is independent, but they also are part of the multiprofessional teams and work in pairs with other professionals. They also perform ultrasound scans independently.
As a midwife you must be able to cope with stress, operate under pressure, have good organising and interaction skills and an ability to make decisions independently.
