Bajoran midwife, Covenant

A Bajoran midwife

A midwife was a professional who provided prenatal care to expecting mothers, attends the birth, and provided postpartum care to the mother and infant. Midwives specialized in low-risk pregnancies, helping women to have healthy pregnancies and natural births – the non-medical equivalent of an obstetrician, who specialized in surgical aspects of pregnancy.

In 2367, Worf acted as midwife when Keiko O'Brien went into labor in Ten Forward on the USS Enterprise-D after the ship's systems were disabled by a quantum filament. (TNG: "Disaster")

In 2372, Julian Bashir acted as midwife for Ekoria. (DS9: "The Quickening")

A Bajoran midwife assisted Mika during the birth of her half Cardassian half Bajoran baby on Empok Nor in 2375. (DS9: "Covenant")
