 Who are Shiphrah and Puah, as mentioned in the Bible?

ANSWER: they were the women who saved the genocide of children from Egyptian Pharoah (EXODUS 1:15)

NOTES: Shiphrah and Puah are the midwives in the Exodus story. In the original Hebrew they are called ha-meyaldot ha-ivriyot and translated as  "the midwives of the Israelites". 

EXODUS 1:15-22 ESV

15 Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, 16 “When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.” 17 But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. 18 So the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and let the male children live?” 19 The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” 20 So God dealt well with the midwives. And the people multiplied and grew very strong. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families. 22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”
