Although the Thai Traditional Midwives practice itself is under threat to disappear from Thai society, preservation of Traditional Midwifery knowledge and practice has been established on governmental educational level.
Today, a number of universities (and some private training centers) provide adequate and thorough Traditional Midwifery courses and studies. Most programs take about 1 year of studies and are in many cases offered as part of a complete 4-year undergraduate study of Traditional Thai Medicine.
Prenatal and postnatal Thai Massage and Postpartum Care and Treatments (Yu Fai) are part of Thai Traditional Midwifery, but the midwifery practice consists of much more elements, such as meaning, scopes and importance of traditional midwifery, care during normal pregnancy and prenatal life of the baby, handling complications during pregnancy, and care of the newborn baby while using both Thai traditional and advanced (contemporary) medicine.
