Meet MSF Nurse-Midwives / Certified Midwives
Work in the Field
Nurse-Midwives / Certified Midwives
Whether an MSF project is a response to an emergency or longer-term, provision of reproductive health care will very often be a component.
Among other reproductive health activities, MSF teams conduct antenatal consultations, assist in deliveries–including Caesarean section, provide prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) treatment to HIV-positive pregnant women, and care for patients suffering from sexual violence-related injuries. Additionally, a number of MSF programs offer specialist obstetric repair surgery for women with vaginal fistula.
As a midwife with MSF, your experience in both complicated and normal deliveries will be essential. You could be involved in setting up a mother-child health department in a rural clinic, providing reproductive health care from mobile clinics, or treating patients in an urban hospital. Your training abilities are crucial because you may be assigned to help local midwives develop new skills. At the same time, you will need to learn cross-cultural issues surrounding childbirth.
