The Nursing Staff works in the care and attention of the pregnant woman ensuring basic care such as hygiene, comfort, psychological support and nutritional care, basic principles to ensure effective care. Thanks to the evolution of low-intervention childbirth advocated by the Ministry of Health and Social Policy, the different health professionals who work with the pregnant woman must provide adequate and effective care, reducing unnecessary interventions to a minimum and ensuring the privacy of the pregnant woman, as well as favoring newborn care such as cleaning, placing identification bracelets, etc., in close contact with the mother, favoring the maternal-filial bond.

The role of nursing in the evolution of the pregnant woman, the puerpera and her newborn is essential, provided by professionals dedicated directly to the care of the woman, as joint knowledge allows us to achieve care in favour of the recommendations on normal birth, as well as the latest standards developed in the Clinical Guide to Normal Birth published by the Ministry of Health and Social Policy this year.

This line of thought and action coincides with a strong change that has to take place in the relationship between health teams and the woman user, to move from a technical relationship to one in which the bioethical principle of autonomy and attention to the integrity of the person involved is prioritised. The aim is to comprehensively address the process that women face during childbirth and thus improve health outcomes for them and their babies. The Postgraduate Certificate is based on an institutional need to train health professionals involved in the process of pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium, in accordance with the objectives set by the Ministry of Health and Social Policy regarding the humanization of pregnancy and childbirth.  

The general purpose of this training proposal is to train nursing professionals to meet the health needs of people with scientific rigor and the highest professional level. This course was created in response to multiple needs in the hospital environment for all professionals, both for those recently incorporated and those who have been providing their professional services for some time and who require constant updating in this very specific area of practice.
