About us

Midwifes support and advise women and their families during the early stages of motherhood: from pregnancy to birth, breastfeeding and the postpartum period.
Whether in a hospital, a birthing centre or as an independent midwife: midwifes work closely together with other health specialists and, through their work, support the health of the woman and her family.
