What is Midwifery?
Midwifery (a midwife is sometimes called a doula) is a health care profession where providers offer care to women during pregnancy, labor and birth, and during the postpartum period. They also care for the newborn and assist the mother with breastfeeding. In addition to normal pregnancies, midwives are trained to handle certain more difficult deliveries such as breech births and multiple births, using non-invasive techniques. In addition to providing care to women during pregnancy and birth, many midwives also provide primary care to women.
