Midwife qualifications.

Comment 5th July 2010

As a mother of 5, iv had my share of midwives. Labour is a painful experience and each labour is different. Labour is also something you can never understand until you have given birth yourself. 

Why do you get some new young midwife telling YOU how to do things? its your body, you know whats going on. but most 'unqualified' midwives force you to do things 'by the book' and ruin your planned birthing experience.

A requirement for a midwife should simple be : to have given birth.

Why does this matter?

Knowing that your in the hands of a woman who genuinely knows how you feel and understands the pain, will make your birth experience a safer and more relaxing experience.
