    I am going to apply to Anglia Ruskin and UEA for the 2016 entry Midwifery course! I am going to do a 60 credit Open University course starting in October to bump up my (280) UCAS points. Currently working as a designer and want to follow my dream to be a birthworker/midwife. I am also a qualified Yoga Teacher and am very excited to bring my yogic knowledge into my future career as a midwife.
    I'm really scared and really excited!

    Hi everyone, I'm starting an access to health course at college in September with a view to getting into uni sept 2016 at stafford or wolverhampton. I have a group meeting at my local hospital next Wednesday for volunteering. I've wanted to be a midwife for years and feel now that the time is right I have 8 children so going to be a challenge but I'm confident I will manage.

    Hello,

    I am from a different area as i am in Kent but iwas wondering are you going to be volunteering on the maternity wards and how did you go about getting into this.

    Thanks

    Definitely check out your local NCT! And SureStart centres can be great too. When I went to the Canterbury Christ Church University open day, they said read up on NHS reports too.

    Hi,I just went on the local hospital website and looked under volunteering, sent an email and they replied saying to go to a group meeting next wednesday to discuss what department id prefer etc then after that ive got to go on an induction/training day in july so it takes about 4/5 months to start any volunteering as they need to also do dbs checks and get references etc but will be well worth it. It seems this is easier than asking for work experience as they expect you to commit for at least 6 months but the minimum hours they say you can volunteer is anything over 2 hours per week so this is great, once your in you can say how many hours and the time of day etc you need

    I am looking to apply for Midwifery either 2016 or 2017! I already have a 1st class degree in Forensic Science but fancy a completely different change of career.
    For experience I am applying to volunteer at a local NHS hospital (requesting a maternity ward) and am also hoping to start volunteering as a healthcare assistant for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

    I have attended an aspiring midwife workshop run by independent midwives and would recommend these as it was fun, friendly and informative. They gave info on some midwifery work, personal statements, work experience, what it's like being a student, the role of the midwife... Message me if you would like contacts

    Hi all,
    I'll be applying this year for September 2016. I'm currently studying Religious Studies, English Literature, Biology, Chemistry and the welsh bacc, I'm predicted ABBB.


    I currently work as a maternity buddy on my local ante/post natal ward every weekend. I recently attended a RCM IDM conference and found it really useful and interesting. I'll be doing a weeks work experience on the women's health unit next month. I'm going to Arizona for 3 weeks in July in order to do midwifery work experience and am going to Thailand for a 2 week midwifery placement next summer.


    I will be applying to:
    Cardiff
    Keele
    Oxford Brookes
    Anglia Ruskin
    South Wales


    Fingers crossed everything goes to plan and I get in to do my dream job

    Hello!

    I'm in Wales too and looking for work experience. Unfortunately I can't afford to go abroad to get it, so at the moment I've been limited to things such as NCT. May I ask how you got into the maternity buddy and women's health unit work experience and which hospital trust this is with?

    I applied to work as a volunteer on the stroke ward and mentioned that I want to go into midiwfery and was told that they were starting up a new scheme so applyie for that instead. I went to a group information afternoon and was accepted just had to be DBS checked. I emailed the head of my local women's health clinic and asked for work experience mentioning that I allready volunteer in the same hospital and have been DBS checked and was accepted for it. It's with the cwm taf trust.

    Thankyou so much! I've been in contact with so many people who work at my local hospital, but the only thing they could offer me was a tour of the maternity services, which allowed me to speak to student midwives. They said they can't offer any work experience or volunteering as they are so full with Cardiff University students. From your experience, it seems I may have to search for hospitals slightly further away from Cardiff haha.

    I'm hoping to apply for 2016 entry also I currently volunteer at my local hospital on a maternity ward but this is my second round of applying as I didn't get the grades last time. I'm just worried that because I did a levels before and I'm now doing an access course it might ruin my chances as I didn't do so well in my a levels? I'm hoping not as this is 100% what I want to do and hoping its 2nd time lucky!!
