Midwife

This job is all about supporting and caring for women during prenancy, labour and birth.

What does a nurse do?

What is important?

  • Empathy and contact readiness (e.g. when dealing with expecting mothers)
  • Care and responsibility (e.g. when weaning the newborn, documenting the birth, etc.)
  •  Psychological stability (e.g. during the birth of sick children or stillbirths)
  • Ability to make decisions (e.g. in emergency situations during childbirth)
