Midwives provide care and support to women and their families throughout pregnancy, during labour and for a short period after the baby’s birth. Offered in partnership with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Bolton’s NMC-approved pre-registration BSc (Hons) Midwifery degree aims to give you the experience and skills to join this demanding yet rewarding career. The University of Bolton’s NMC-approved pre-registration BSc (Hons) Midwifery degree, offered in partnership with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, offers you the skills and knowledge to support expectant mothers through pregnancy and childbirth. There is a shortage of qualified midwives in the UK, so career opportunities are excellent. You’ll spend 50% of your time in midwifery practice placements at our partner trust. The rest of your studies will be based at the university, increasing your theoretical understanding and practical knowledge in a way that complements and enhances your learning in the workplace. We’ll support you as you learn to care for women and their babies during the antenatal, perinatal and postnatal phases of the pregnancy and childbirth continuum, respecting their individual needs and choices, their cultural, social and religious backgrounds, and also taking into account the needs of their families and carers. We’ll work to prepare you to lead their care in a wide range of settings in the community and hospitals, and help you to gain expertise in health promotion and teaching parenting classes. Together with our partner trust, we’ll work to prepare you to become a confident, professional midwife, able to navigate, deliver and lead the care of women and their babies within an ever-changing health and social care environment. On successful completion of the midwifery qualification, you’ll possess the knowledge and skills you need to perform as an autonomous, highly competent, compassionate midwife who can be trusted to maintain professional standards and assure the protection of women, babies and their families and carers.
