Midwives: finally a salary increase in February, what is the amount? (News) – Midwives: finally a salary increase in February, what is the amount? As RockedBuzz.com, we have explained detailed information on this subject in detail below. “Midwives: finally a salary increase in February, how much is it?” Here are the details .. The midwives rightly claim to be recognized as caregivers, they who accompany each day their patients in the process of giving birth . The government claims to have finally heard them and is proposing several measures.
What changes for midwives ?
– A revaluation of their salary from February 1 2022, the amount of 500 monthly net euros . The latter includes 78 euros from the Health Segur, 25 euros of adjustment of the salary scale and 183 euros of exercise bonus
– The creation of a sixth year of studies in maieutics instead of the current five. This additional year will start with the promotion of 2022 – 2023 .
Are the measures announced for midwives sufficient?
While midwives recognize the measures taken by the government, they are not, however, fully satisfied. Several of them, interviewed by our colleague from Figaro , brought up the following points:
– The premium of 183 euros will not be taken into account in the calculation of the retirement and it can disappear at any time. On the other hand, this premium is only valid for midwives employed in public hospitals, and not for liberal, contractual or those who practice in private clinics.
– Midwives still not having the status of hospital practitioner, their social consideration and their salary scale is affected.
– One lack of staff has persisted for many years and is getting worse. A study conducted by the National Association of Midwifery Students in 2018 showed that 7 students out of 10 had depressive symptoms. Today, according to a teacher from the Aix-Marseille school of maieutics, 10% of student midwives are on anxiolytics. These studies are not very reassuring in terms of improving the working conditions for caregivers … and therefore patient care.
