These remedies can help stimulate labor
Midwives need the best possible training – theoretical and with a high level of practical experience.
Obstetrics as an academic profession
SPD parliamentary deputy Karl Lauterbach argues: "The course for midwives can only be offered and not compulsory." Much more important is better payment for midwives and clinics for births. In the coalition agreement, the Union and the SPD agreed to implement the training of midwives as an academic profession according to EU requirements.
The background to this is an EU regulation according to which the profession should be learned through a bachelor’s degree by 2020. Some cities already have such courses.

The German Midwives Association welcomed Spahn’s statements. Germany is now the last EU country in which midwives are not yet trained at universities. The best possible training through a degree is necessary and will also ensure high quality in obstetrics in the future. So far, the training has lasted three years. It comprises theoretical and practical lessons in state-approved midwifery schools and at hospitals.
