A midwife provides direct clinical services to mothers and newly born babies. They give physician-supervised physical and emotional care to the mothers throughout labor, delivery and postpartum phases. They also evaluate and manage the labor and delivery process, provide care to the newborns and help mothers care for themselves and newborns.

A Midwife Resume is the most important part of your job search. This document markets you and your credentials to a prospective employer and invite them to learn about your nursing and midwifery skills and qualifications.

Submitting a well-written resume along with an attractive midwife cover letter is the primary step in your midwife job application process. Your goal in writing an effective resume is to explain your key experiences and accomplishments in a way that interest the hiring manager. Midwifes who best write their past experiences, education, and skills have good chances of further consideration.
