Midwives often describe their job as ‘privileged’. The role they have in preparing women for the birth of a new life makes them a key healthcare professional during all stages of pregnancy, labour and the early postnatal period.

As well as the satisfaction it brings, the role is demanding and carries a high level of responsibility. Midwives work in all healthcare settings in a variety of ways, providing women and their families with choices and continuity of care.
