A midwife droid holding a newborn Leia Skywalker.

Midwife droids were a type of droid developed to assist obstetricians of varying species in delivering infants. These droids were most often created in the image of a female of the species, and had calming personalities, a non- threatening aspect and had soothing voices. The limbs of the droid were designed to help ease the mother's discomfort and pain, and provide support for the newborn. The main body of the midwife droid was wrapped in specialized materials that could be heated to comfort the baby. A Polis Massan Chroon-Tan midwife droid delivered Luke and Leia Skywalker.
