Nicola Oliver, also known as The Fit Midwife, joins Maria Botros to discuss the role a midwife plays throughout a woman’s pregnancy journey and explain the differences between a midwife and an OB/GYN.

  • A midwife is effectively an expert in normal birth, trained to assist, support and educate women throughout their pregnancy and labor, says Nicola
  • Nicola: An OBGYN is there to put out 'fires', they are there for emergencies and life-saving intervention
  • Don't share your traumatic pregnancy experience with expecting mothers, we don't need to plant seeds of doubt, says Nicola
  • Nicola: The best thing partners and family members can do is attending antenatal classes with you
