Study our degree in midwifery for rewarding careers supporting women and their families through childbirth. Midwives are the lead professionals at all straightforward births, whether this takes place at home, a birth centre or in hospital. Whilst on the programme, you will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to meet the needs of women and babies. This will include childbirth in the delivery suite, birth centres and home environments. You will learn accountability for the role you play in their lives, both during and after pregnancy. Care will be based on best available evidence and reflect contemporary knowledge, practice, research and technology. Our midwifery degree prepares you for the role and responsibilities of a registered midwife. You'll be working in the NHS serving the women and families of south-east London and Kent.
