Midwifery

Midwives support mothers before, during and after the birth of a child. Consider midwifery if you want to learn to combine clinical skills with understanding the needs and experiences of women from a wide range of backgrounds – not if you want to work with babies! This is a physically and emotionally demanding course requiring confidence and compassion. Midwives work in hospitals and increasingly in the community.
