The term midwife means ‘with woman’. Midwives are required to be the lead professionals for women with an uncomplicated pregnancy and co-ordinators of care for all other childbearing women. This requires midwives to demonstrate compassion, autonomy, critical decision-making skills, competence and professional accountability. Midwives work in partnership with women providing support, advice and care enabling women to make informed choices during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. Midwives make a unique contribution to public health and influence the health and well-being of women, children and families.
