Hi,
Just wondering what experience anyone with an offer or who is now a student midwife had when they got onto the course?
I’ve got a psych degree, my dissertation was on perinatal mental health, I’ve got the life experience but nothing actually care/clinical wise. I feel like I’ve got everything except that one crucial thing.
I’ve emailed local hospitals and I am looking at volunteering as a perinatal mental health support worker but whilst I wait to hear back, it would be great to hear what others had when they applied!

Thank you 😅

Hey,
I applied for Adult Nursing and am going to KCL, but I'm a mature student and wanted to see if I could ease your worries a bit.
I got in with no science A-Levels, a degree in English Literature and only 2 short term voluntary positions - one as a volunteer with the GoodSam app for Covid, and one as a vaccination marshall. I think midwifery is a bit more competitive, but I am proof you can get onto a healthcare course with little to no experience!

Good luck

Hi there

None is required okay but would help if you had any like.

I'm a registered midwife as qualified in 2019 and if you have any questions you want to ask me then feel free to PM message me ok.
