Midwives are also qualified to provide fantastic support to new Mums and newborn babies alike during the early months following birth (aka: the postnatal period).
A midwife also understands variations in the labour process, and can assess when things may be deviating from a normal course. Midwives are themselves competent in childbirth and at One for Women provide professional support to our obstetricians in the labour and delivery process.
A midwife and mother's perspective
Like so many other women, I felt a mixture of excitement, fear and anxiety when I fell pregnant for the first time. After I gave birth to my son, Isaac, that fear and anxiety didn't magically go away. Even though I'd been a midwife for five years, I struggled as a new mum. It was this experience that made me want to help women during their transition into motherhood.
