As a dedicated midwife, she offers support and guidance all throughout the process of birthing. She works in monitoring the emotional, physical and mental state of the mother. She also plays a huge role in making sure of the safety of the baby as the mother receives assistance and care throughout the procedure.
Complications in pregnancy can be very serious, even fatal. With the help of a midwife, the health of both the mother and baby is taken care of. A midwife also tends to be more hands-on and practical compared to actual doctors, working with the mother to offer physical, emotional and mental support that is needed. The role that a midwife plays can serve as a pivotal role as an alternative to modern medicines for the birthing process.
