POSTGRADUATE TRAINING IN MIDWIFERY/CHILD HEALTH NURSING

Introduction

Midwifery is defined as “skilled knowledgeable end compassionate care for child bearing women, new-borns, infants and families across the continuum from pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, birth, after birth and early weeks of life.

The evidence shows that midwifery plays a vital role and when provided by educated trained midwives, is associated with improved quality of care and rapid and sustained reduction in maternal and new-born morbidity and mortality.

Core characteristics of midwifery include optimizing normal biological, psychological, socio- cultural and environmental processes of reproduction and early life, timely prevention and management of complications, consultation with and referral to other services.

Being the first Nigerian institution to offer midwifery at the university level, our vision is to continually improve our status as first centre of excellence for midwifery education in Nigeria.
