Midwifery service in Sri Lanka

A person, usually a woman, who is trained to assist women in childbirth. Midwifes in Sri Lanka helped in reducing maternal, neonatal and child mortality in Sri Lanka.

Those who satisfactorily complete Public Health Midwife Training Program register with the Sri Lanka Medical Council and are certified. To achieve the goal of having a midwife in every locality, the government created two categories of midwives: institutional midwives (IMs) are specifically trained to work in institutions, whereas public health midwives (PHMs) are trained for different tasks more suited to care provided at the community level.

Recent figures indicate that about 2,720 IMs are employed in maternity homes and hospitals. As in any developed country, they provide care for women in ante- and postnatal wards and labour rooms.

PHMs mainly work in the field, providing domiciliary care by residing in the community. There are approximately 4,654 PHMs (one PHM per 5,000 people). The Divisional Medical Officer of Health (DMO) and his or her assistant provide additional support and supervision.
