MAHSA University’s Advanced Diploma in Midwifery is a highly-skilled programme for students who have obtained their Diploma or Degree in Nursing or equivalent qualifications, and want a future in the care of birthing mothers and postpartum care.
A Nurse-midwife is a person who is trained in both nursing and midwifery and, in Malaysia is certified by the Midwifery Board Malaysia.
Students will be trained and given clinical exposure in the highly specialised medical divisions of gynaecology, obstetrics, neonatal care, family and culture, antepartum and postpartum nursing, psychology in motherhood, preventive medicine, recognition of the early signs of medical complications in birthing, and the education for girls and women.
Once they have completed this programme, students will qualify to sit for the examination for certification by the Midwifery Board Malaysia. Students will then graduate as State Registered Nurse and Midwife and be recognized by the Ministry of Health Malaysia.
They will be able to provide skilled midwifery nursing; give quality care to newborns, their mothers and their families; recognise, mitigate and eliminate problems pertaining to various aspects of pregnancy, birth and antenatal situations. Because birthing and babies are some of the major concerns of life, skilled midwives will always be in great demand, and MAHSA aims to provide the very best of them.
