This study explored Tanzanian midwives’ perceptions of their professional role within their local context. Findings were to inform recommendations for educational midwifery programs. Using focus group interviews with sixteen Tanzanian midwives, the findings revealed the overwhelming focus was on saving lives of women and newborns. The fundamental elements of this involved prioritising care and undertaking patient assessment. Midwives were challenged by the poor working conditions, knowledge deficit and hence low status viewed by the community.
