Midwifery

Midwives teach, educate and empower women to take control of their own health care. In most communities, they provide prenatal care, or supervision of the pregnancy, and then assist the mother to give birth. They manage the birth, and guard the woman and her newborn in the postpartum period. Most midwives encourage and monitor women throughout their labor with techniques to improve the labor and birth. Many midwives provide family planning services and routine women’s health examinations such as pap smears and physical examinations. They teach women about sexually transmitted infections, and focus on prevention of the spread of infections.

The course of Midwifery prepares the students for the demanding and important career of midwives. The course work, practical experience and clinical exercises in Tanchuling College are designed to produce capable, committed and highly competitive midwives.
