The environment surrounding pregnancy and childbirth has been changing in recent years. The number of
maternity clinics is decreasing, for example, as more women join the workforce and elect to have fewer
children. While there have been dramatic advances in perinatal care, there is still a shortage of
professionals who understand those developments and know how to apply them. More women are also
interested in looking beyond hospitals to more natural experiences—namely, going through a natural
childbirth at home or a midwifery birthing center.
Society needs midwives who can meet these increasingly diverse and growing demands, and this was the impetus behind the creation of the THCU Department of MidwiferyMajor in Midwifery. In this program, we develop medical professionals who can bring a high level of expertise, a sincere approach to life, and a loving heart to communities that need it—while also being passionate about contributing to the development of midwifery as a field of study.
