Nurse Midwives Career
Nurse midwives take care of women, particularly in regards to reproductive health issues. If you choose this career, you might conduct gynecological exams, offer family planning services, and provide prenatal care. While mothers are delivering babies, you would provide labor support and status updates, manage emergency situations, repair lacerations and may provide assistance to doctors during cesarean births.
Nurse midwives can also provide care for new mothers and newborns for several weeks after the birth. This may include offering wellness care, monitoring baby’s early growth, supporting breast-feeding and educating patients on health care issues.
