What is a Community Midwife?
Community Midwives help pregnant women look after themselves and the health of their baby. Midwives give mothers and fathers information about pregnancy and help them to prepare for birth. They also visit the family home after birth to check on the mother's and baby's health and give feeding support to the mother.
