Midwife, The

Midwife, The: Called upon by women in the midst of difficult labors, this servant of Morwyn clarifies matters. Should the Midwife come invisibly to the bedside of a woman in a difficult labor, she may speed the delivery and save the woman’s life. If this is not possible, she may at least take away the woman’s suffering and let her die in peace. Most women call out to the Midwife and Morwyn in the midst of childbirth, even when they are not traumatic. The Midwife is said to be a heavy woman with broad hips and breasts heavy with milk. When an infant dies in the first weeks of its life, it is often said that she “nurses with the Midwife now.”
