Midwifery is a physically and emotionally demanding job that requires a unique set of human qualities: confidence, compassion, cultural understanding. Midwives in the UK find themselves helping women of many diverse backgrounds and cultures. Some of these women will be given support and advice before, during and after the birth of their babies. This often happens at the hospital and not uncommonly also in the community.
