Developing the midwifery profession

We are continuously working to strengthen and promote the midwifery profession in Romania as a provider of health care services for women and newborns and are taking numerous steps to reopen midwifery faculties in Romanian medical universities and increase the number of midwives licensed nationwide. At the same time, we offer support for admission preparation, access to study programs and exchange of experience with other countries.

Romania is the only European country where the midwifery profession is at risk of extinction, although our country has the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in Europe. Also, in Romania, more than 80% of underage girls who become mothers drop out of school.

Midwives are essential in the provision of reproductive health services and care for pregnant women, mothers and newborns, helping to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates by providing quality health care during childbearing, pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period. Midwives can also provide health education, including reproductive health, and counselling for adolescents to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and sexual abuse, thus preventing health and social risks associated with early pregnancy, school drop-out and human trafficking.

Începând cu anul universitar 2023, la Facultatea de Moașe și Asistență Medicală din cadrul Universității de Medicină și Farmacie „Carol Davila” din București sunt disponibile 15 locuri la specializarea Moașe, dintre care 14 bugetate. Admiterea se face în luna iunie 2023, în urma unui examen scris (test grilă cu 80 de întrebări) din materia de Biologie studiată în liceu.

De asemenea, Universitatea de Medicină și Farmacie Craiova va avea anul acesta disponibile 45 de locuri (cu taxă) la Facultatea de Moașe și Asistență Medicală. Admiterea are loc în septembrie 2023.

Asociația noastră a încheiat un protocol de colaborare cu UMF „Carol Davila” din București, precum și cu UMF Craiova în care ne angajăm să promovăm în rândul posibililor candidați profesia de moașă și programul de studii superioare pentru specializarea „Moașe” din cadrul Facultății de Moașe și Asistență Medicală.

At the same time, we offer support in preparing for admission, in accessing study and exchange programs with other countries because we want these programs to attract as many people as possible to contribute to improving the lives of women and children.
