The Professional Midwife of CASA A.C. is a highly qualified professional, in everything related to the theoretical-practical and ethical-moral field of attention and care of women within her area. She can assume behaviors in the face of the partial or total resolution of obstetric, gynecological, neonatal, administrative, and environmental situations associated with these disciplines.
Includes the protection and recovery of gynecological-obstetric and neonatal health, at the primary level, for women, men, families, and communities that require it.
She also possesses a set of personal attributes, values, and characteristics and the emotional stability needed to:
Provide support, advice, guidance, and motivation.
To act with objectivity and have the capacity to integrate social groups.
Objectively, the Professional Midwife is a fully capable professional capable of performing her roles, which are many, broader than what we usually know, managing and spreading the many spaces in which she can accomplish. It is the midwife’s responsibility not to be pigeonholed only in the traditional. We must choose our work area according to our tastes, ideals, qualities, and according to what allows her to develop entirely as a person.
From the above, we can see the great importance and professional, social and cultural impact of integrating professional midwives into all maternal and child health services in Mexico and the world to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality.
