Becoming a midwife is a unique and inspiring process. You will be the lead professional and an expert in low-risk midwifery care. Providing care for women during one of most significant periods in their life, as they become a family.
The BSc midwifery programme will allow you to explore all aspects of midwifery care of the woman and her baby. From monitoring their wellbeing during pregnancy, caring for them during the birthing journey and then supporting the family in the postnatal period as well as providing health promotion and general advice.
You will be taught to question and critically evaluate practice and, in doing so, place women and families at the centre of care. The course is equally divided between University and the practice setting. During your practice placements, you will be supported and assessed by midwives, who will guide your learning and development.
