Case holding offers students the opportunity to follow women throughout their pregnancy, be on-call for the birth and care for women during the postnatal period. There is also an optional opportunity for students to undertake the Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) pathway. The course is accredited by the Baby Friendly Initiative, this education during the course equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to support breastfeeding and effectively build relationships with women.

In your second year you will begin exploring the different ways in which pregnancy and childbirth can change peopleâs lives. In your third year, you will develop skills needed for effective management and leadership and will be given opportunities to develop your teaching abilities.
