Midwifery is an exciting, rewarding career thatâs always evolving and changing. On this highly practical course, youâll develop the skills and confidence you need to make a significant contribution to the health of women, babies and families.
Modern midwives do much more than assist with birth. They work closely with other healthcare professionals to support women throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
This course will help you develop into a competent midwife whoâs able to work as a team member or leader. Your time will be divided equally between classroom study and supervised placements. Youâll learn to assess individual women and to plan, implement and evaluate care that meets the needs of mother, baby and family. Youâll recognise and respond to factors that affect the physical, emotional and social well-being of mothers and babies, too. And youâll build essential problem-solving skills while learning to work with professionals from a range of disciplines.
