Midwives provide essential care, advice and support for women and their families during pregnancy, labour and early post-natal stages. As a professional midwife you will enjoy a career with unique challenges and rewards; you will share people’s most personal experiences. You will provide essential care, advice and support for women and their family during pregnancy, labour and the post-natal period. To thrive in this role you need to be adaptable, compassionate and dependable, with a sound knowledge of everyday midwifery issues and potential complications. This course enables you to develop core midwifery competencies, equips you to confidently apply theory to practice and leads to eligibility for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife. To ensure you can confidently apply theory to practice, you will spend 50% of the year on placements in varied health settings. The rest of the course is spent in theoretical learning which includes synchronous and asynchronous learning, lectures, collaborative learning, self-directed study, group work, presentations, assessments and simulated care. Our simulation suite includes a replica hospital room and home birthing room. When you choose to study midwifery with us, you'll also have the opportunity to gain a global perspective on an overseas placement. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum. Our midwifery programme has recently been validated and is underpinned by the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards of Proficiency for Midwives (2019). It includes the newly approved Newborn Infant Physical Examination qualification as part of the year 3 modules.
