Workshop on Midwifery
Midwives are specialist nurses trained to look after women during pregnancy, labour and postpartum. Their philosophy of treating pregnancy and labour as normal and making care patient centric helps women to have a safe and satisfying experience.
Our nurses in India, have a short, variable exposure to labouring women during their training period, they mostly learn on the job.
So to provide them a peek into this world, we @ Bangalore RCOG Trust have organised this workshop.
