Course summary

Looking for a rewarding career path where you’ll make a meaningful impact? Working in midwifery, a field of healthcare that has been around for thousands of years, midwives make a real difference every day to women’s health. As a midwife, you’ll be the lead professional for providing care to pregnant women, new mothers and their babies. On this course, you will explore answers to questions like: What does universal midwifery care look like? How does care differ for women with additional complexity?

You will experience community midwifery and home and midwife-led units. And you’ll be part of a multidisciplinary team caring for the most complex cases in hospitals. With the recent influx of funding for the midwifery profession and your fresh enthusiasm and desire to make a positive impact, imagine how you’ll play a part in the future of the midwifery profession. Be a part of the exciting change. This course was ranked 2nd in the UK Guardian 2024 subject rankings.
