The Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) pandemic has been declared a global problem. The increased risk of exposure to infection and death is faced by health workers, including midwives, who often have a dual role in providing services. This study aims to understand and discuss the experiences of midwives working during the Covid-19 pandemic, focusing on midwife professional experiences, physical, psychological, and social conditions, challenges encountered, and coping strategies while working. The data will be obtained by interviewing midwives using in-depth interviews. The interview will be conducted online, recorded, and transcribed verbatim. Data analysis will be performed using the Colaizzi method and the findings are discussed with the expert to form a category or theme.
