"I love my midwifery team and can’t see myself working anywhere else. I can rely blindly on every single colleague. We are all pulling together."

We focus on personal responsibility and closeness to family

As a midwife at the Charité, your expertise for pregnancy, midwifery and postpartum support counts. Your daily routine is especially diversified because you will attend natural physiological births and also accompany sick mothers and children during delivery. The range of treatments for rare disorders is unique in Berlin and beyond its borders.

You will also be part of a team that is particularly well-versed in dealing with natural twin births as well as natural births from breech presentation. These births are preceded by an extensive consultation. If necessary, we also offer a sectio – the so-called “Caesarean” – as standard.

Comprehensive pre and postnatal care

As a midwife, you prepare families for a very special moment. In communication with expectant mothers and their partners, your work will include educational sessions, special consultations and childbirth preparation classes. Our postpartum care includes a variety of services like postnatal exercise, infant care education and parent networking offers.

Responsibility in a closely networked team

Another focus of your midwifery work at the Charité will be the care of pregnant women on our prepartum wards. Whether assisting during premature labor, the induction of labor, or in many other situations – loving midwifery care is especially important to us.

You will work independently and autonomously with pregnant and delivering women as much as possible. With us, you will experience comparatively flat hierarchies and trusting interaction. You will hereby always be in close contact with a highly qualified interdisciplinary team and the physicians on duty will be on hand to offer advice and support. The special thing about the Charité is that the neonatology and anesthesia wards are connected directly to the maternity clinics, and the colleagues can be on site within seconds.


Independence and mentoring in training

We are training the next generation of midwifery experts. In addition to the latest medical knowledge and diverse practical experience, it is also important for us to convey the strong solidarity among midwives as well as values like honesty and respect. In total, the Charité accompanies three midwifery courses and offers the trainees and students close personal exchange through a mentoring system.
