About the programme

Midwives receive newborns into the world while offering care and support for people undergoing the glorious experience of becoming parents.
Midwives also work with the entire scope of reproductive health, offer advice on cohabitation and contraception, diagnose pregnancy, and support, advise, treat and care for the pregnant woman and her partner throughout the process. Midwives additionally work with fertility treatments, obstetric scans and health promotion.

Midwives independently carry out natural, spontaneous childbirths, either in hospitals or in the home of the families. If complications arise, the midwife cooperates with a doctor. After the birth, the midwife cares for the new family.

Sometimes parents lose a child. In such cases, it is key that the midwife possesses empathy and vigour, to be able to support the family professionally through this difficult time in their lives.
