A midwife is a primary care provider offering care for low-risk women. She carefully monitors and guides her clients through her pregnancy, birth, and time after birth. She is trained to recognize abnormal findings and refers to another health care provider when situations arise that are outside of her scope of practice. Midwives believe in the appropriate use of technology and put women at the centre of the decision making process. Midwives can order all laboratory tests required for the duration of care and can prescribe drugs for certain conditions.
