Being a midwife is to primarily focus on the health of the pregnant lady and her unborn baby. You will also help to ensure a safe and healthy delivery and to help to reduce the risk of complications. It is often the case that you will meet with your midwife before the baby is due so you can help build that relationship up to hope for an easier birth. See: Improving safety for midwives.
