Just worried that I'm not going to be experienced enough. I'm trying to get work experience for the summer, universities only offer a few places for midwifert and I'm worried I won't be good enough.

what experience do you have already?
Make sure in your ps , you talk about the experience that you already have and relate to midwifery and the role of a midwife.

I did work experience with a primary school as a teacher assistant and work with adults with learning disabilities but the work experience was for college.

Still working with adults with learning disabilities could be seen as care experience. Have you thought about volunteering at a mother and toddler group or something along those lines?

The work experience at the nursery would give you good transferableskills and lots of experience talking to families. But I also suggest looking into these avenues:

- panda charity
- NCT
- Sure start
- Maternity wards
- antenatal classes
- sexual health clinics
- family planning clinics
- early pregnancy units
- mother and baby groups
- breastfeeding groups
- sands charity
- arching Angels

There are many more but these are the few that first came to mind.

Also there are many midwifery study days around, some organised by the universities and some by charities or other organisations. They're very good for expanding your knowledge and portfolio.

I also did an online course with open2study it's free but is uncredited but showed that I had ongoing enthusiasm for midwifery and looked great mentioned on my PS.

Hope some of this helps.
