    I take it you want to become a Registered Midwife and deliver babies and not just an assistant to the Midwife.

    Labour ward is the most challenging and critical part of nursing. You are dealing with two lives, and things can change in moments. Midwives have to very dedicated, thorough and attend to minutia all the time. Loss of focus can cost two lives at a time.

    Labour wards are mostly happy places but there are days when very sad things happen. you simply have to be able to recover from one situation and move on.

    Resilience, being very well organised, team work, huge amount of energy and excellent work ethic is needed for the labour ward. High levels of patient care and high levels of hygiene must be adhered to at all times.

    Going off duty can sometimes be delayed because of patients needs. When on duty you have to put yourself, your comfort and your family after your patient.

    Nurses and Midwives have fleeting relationships of varying intensities. Particularly as a midwife you attend to the patient in a very private and personal manner. Her delivery is a once in a life time event sometimes and it is something she’ll always remember so the midwife needs to make sure the event is as positive as possible.

    Woman are at their most vulnerable while in your care and they depend on you for their own life and the safe delivery of their baby.
