The midwife works in the care and attention of pregnant women ensuring their hygiene, comfort, psychological support and nutritional care, as well as her own safety, development and overall health: the basic principles to ensure effective care. As a result of the evolution of childbirth, different health professionals who work with pregnant women must provide adequate and effective care, and also reduce unnecessary interventions to a minimum in order to ensure the privacy of pregnant women, and provide care for the newborn, such as cleaning, placing identification bracelets, etc., while maintaining close contact with the mother and favoring the maternal bond.

Midwives play an essential part in the evolution of pregnant women, the postpartum mother and her newborn. They are professionals who are directly dedicated to the care of women, as joint knowledge allows for better care and recommendations for natural childbirth.

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 general aim of this educational program is to update the knowledge and skills of midwives so they can address the health needs of women and their future children with scientific rigor and maximum level of professionalism. This program 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 up-to-date program in this very specific area of practice.
