Do you find the EA career choices far too limiting for your Medieval Sims? I know I do -- which is why I'm making Medieval themed career mods!

This is a rabbit hole career, not an Active or Work from Home profession (although I would like to include those features in the future). Let's break the career down:

MIDWIFE (Full-Time, Teen-Elder)
Midwives are the backbone of all civilizations, providing the necessary education and assistance before and during childbirth. Midwifery is a serious medical profession, so you best not be the squeamish type. Learn up on human biology and bedside manner, because you cannot afford to make mistakes in this role.

Some objectives require Laundry Day (use washtub) and Parenthood (gain Parenting skill, write in journal), but the career will work just fine without them.


Level 1 - Rag Cleaner
As the job title suggests, you are in charge of providing clean rags to the midwives during childbirth. Keep those linens sanitized, refill the basins with fresh water, and stay out of the way of the experts.
Pay: 5/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Reach Level 2 Logic Skill, Clean Sink, Wash Laundry in Washtub

Level 2 - Birth Attendant
While in the birthing room, you may be asked to fulfill any number of tasks for the midwives. Bring wet rags for the patient, prepare the bassinet for the new infant, and hold instruments if needed.
Pay: 10/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Level Up Logic Skill, Be Friendly to 5 Sims

Level 3 - Midwife's Apprentice
You are a midwife in training and must pay close attention during the entire childbirth experience. Read up on human anatomy and the best birthing practices science has to offer. Most importantly, ask questions and do your best.
Pay: 15/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Hug Someone, Play 3 Games of Chess

Level 4 - Nurse Midwife
As a Nurse Midwife, you have honed fine skills in the birthing room and possess a gentle touch to comfort the patient. The kindness of your words goes a long way in soothing those going through the birthing process.
Pay: 20/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Achieve Level 4 Parenting Skill

Level 5 - Midwife
You have trained under knowledgeable mentors in the field of midwifery and earned the official title of Midwife. You know just what to do when complications present and have a cool head to deal with the pressures of bringing life into this world.
Pay: 30/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Ask to Feel Baby, Finish Reading 3 Books

Level 6 - Reproduction Educator
With years of experience in the midwifery field, your knowledge base is expansive. From twins to breeches, you know all the tricks in the trade to ensure a safe and healthy birth. It's not just childbirth you're an expert of -- menstruation, family planning, and menopause are also in your wheelhouse of topics you can educate other Sims on.
Pay: 40/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Help a Child with School Work for 4 Hours, Reach Level 5 Logic Skill

Level 7 - Maternity Expert
You have aided in the delivery of hundreds of infants and possess deep expertise of the intricacies of human biology. Don't be surprised if Sims refer to you as the Village Healer when you pass by. You're just that good!
Pay: 55/hr
Days per week: M-F
Shift: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Objectives: Write in Journal, Achieve Level 4 Herbalism Skill
