Midwife volunteer placements and midwife training jobs are available in all the African countries where we place volunteers.

Volunteer Midwife: Newborn

Volunteer midwife jobs offer a good training opportunity for a student midwife and anyone wishing to become a midwife.

Midwifery volunteer is also ideal for experienced midwives and enhances the training and capacity of midwives in African hospitals.

There is a severe shortage of nurses and midwifes in Africa. Midwife volunteers help in midwifery training of African students who wish to fill in the many midwifery vacancies.
