How can the Midwifry profession be promoted?

Around the world, midwives are working to ensure that women receive high-quality and dignified care before, during and after childbirth, and experience safe, healthy deliveries. Yet, globally, one in three women still gives birth without a skilled birth attendant. We know that investment in midwifery care is critical to reducing needless deaths in pregnancy and childbirth. This is word on the street about how to increase the number of midwives and improve their working conditions.
An informed woman refines her own style and remains absolute as she takes responsibility for moving her perspective beyond the myths.

“People need to change the mentality that Midwifery is for women alone. Even men should engage in the profession since it’s like any other job.”

Dr. Joseph Nkurunziza, Chairperson of the Health Development Initiative

“Constructing infrastructure that facilitates the Midwife profession would be one of the ways of promoting the profession. 

If the equipments and tools used are inadequate, skilled personnel in the midwife profession will switch to other professions.”

Francis Kabika, Representative of SkyNet, Ministry of Local Government

“There is need to sensitize people against undermining the midwifery. People should embrace it and know that Midwives save lives.

They have the most influential tasks in this world because they help a mother to bring a child into the World at the same time make sure that a mother remains calm and secure while giving birth.”

Fiona Rutagengwa Kamikazi, Model and Student.

“Promoting girl’s education is another factor that can boost the number of Midwives in the country. More students should be empowered to offer science subjects because the profession revolves around science.”
