Midwife Kadri Vinkel
I am a midwife, because I like my work and everything about it. On the one hand, I sympathise with the idea that a childbirth should unfold as naturally as possible, but on the other hand, I know from first-hand experience that things are not always black and white.
I have been working in this position from 1996. All these years following my graduation, I have been working in the Women’s Clinic of East Tallinn Central Hospital and practising my profession. In 2007, I graduated from the Tallinn Health Care College, completing a professional higher education programme in the same field. In addition to working in the delivery room, I have been practising my profession also in the department of postnatal care and independently accepting patients for first trimester ultrasound scans. For charity purposes and out of a sense of mission, I teach future midwives. During all these years, I have attended many additional and professional training courses.
Besides my work, I am a great fan of all kinds of handicrafts and good food. In my leisure time, I enjoy being with family and friends.
In addition to Estonian, I also speak Russian.
