I want to be a midwife

Hang Sovan Roth, 23, who graduated with a nursing degree at International University in 2012, wants to be midwife.

She noticed that “midwives can help women, especially those who live in rural areas, to deliver their babies safely”.

Even though there is a widespread awareness of reproductive health and potential delivery complications in Cambodia, Roth continued, the amount of healthcare is not nearly enough. For this reason, she believes this is her calling – to help people.

Recently, Roth worked for a private clinic as an assistant nurse. It is her job to help the midwife prepare materials used in the delivery – or abortion – process.

Roth asks LIFT how to go about becoming a midwife.​​
