Abstract :The aim of this study is to elucidate the roles of midwives and the way they related to women between the mid 1940s and mid 1950s, the period when home deliveries were most prevalent. As a method of research, I interviewed a midwife who used to actively work in provincial areas. Results of the study are as follows. Midwives played an important role in securing a sanitary environment and protecting the well-being of puerperants and newborns by giving advice on healthcare and assisting with deliveries. In doing so, she also educated people on sanitary and health care. In order to make deliveries safe and easy, the midwife became proactively involved in medical interventions based on medicine, which contributed to advancing the medicalization of delivery. Moreover, in their relationships with women, the midwife was closely and continually involved in their lives. The midwife provided support not only for deliveries, but also for the various problem faced by women, who were in a vulnerable position, and thus had close relationships with women.
