Tyra,

If you really want to know what being a midwife entails (at least from a cinematic perspective), there is a wonderful show on Netflix, "Call the Midwife." The show is set in post-WorldWarII London, England. I have watched all 9 seasons (and 3 more are coming). There is AT LEAST one birth (simulated - it is fiction after all) in each show - but usually several. Some births go well and some don't. But you do get a good sense of caring for the mother before, during and after a birth. I have learned a lot about midwifery from watching the show!

Good luck!

Hi Tyra,
It depends on what you consider a good job. A midwife is responsible for caring for a mother during delivery physically, mentally and emotionally. They also talk to the patient before and after birth about what they can expect and what they should do if they are experiencing any problems. They help the woman create a birth plan and will also perform gynecological exams. So if this sounds interesting to you, then it sounds like a great job!
