A midwife is a health professional trained to support and care for women during pregnancy, labour and birth. They help you to stay healthy in pregnancy and, if no complications arise, to give birth with little intervention. Midwives also care for you and your baby in the first few weeks following the birth.
This Kenya Registered Midwife (KRM) diploma programme trains you to provide care to both mother and newborn during normal pregnancy, labour, birth, and the first six weeks of your baby’s life.
When women and babies are healthy, midwives provide primary care similar to the care that a family doctor would provide, including ordering blood tests, ultrasounds, and other routine assessments.
Kenya Registered Midwife (KRM) diploma programme gives you the skills required to provide emergency care, detect complications, and provide care together with physicians and other specialists when consultations are needed.
Kenya Registered Midwife (KRM) graduates are highly trained, versatile healthcare professionals who provide vital medical care and guide patients through important life transitions.
In addition to caring for expectant mothers from pregnancy through the postpartum period, nurse midwives treat women throughout their lives as primary care providers.
