Our Midwifery Studies degree is designed to help you become a competent, confident and autonomous practitioner with the knowledge and skills to pursue a successful career. Learning from experienced midwives and gaining real-world experience in a variety of healthcare settings, you’ll be able to prepare to make a difference in the lives of women and their families. Many different cultural, social and health-related influences affect child-bearing women. On this course, we know just how important it is for student midwives to learn about midwifery in context, to gain a broad perspective on the delivery of care and to be supported by enthusiastic lecturers who know exactly what it’s like to be a midwife. That’s why this course is designed by midwives for midwives. It’s also regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Gaining clinical experience is key to your professional development. It’s also vital to build a deep understanding of how to work in a team alongside other healthcare professionals. That’s why the course includes undertaking clinical practice working across a range of settings including birth centres, midwife-led units, labour suites, antenatal/postnatal wards, as well as in the community. Throughout the course you’ll have the opportunity to build excellent knowledge of the theory of midwifery. Across all areas of teaching, we focus on the promotion of normality, health and the safe management of pregnancy, to ensure the best possible outcomes for parents and the newborn. We’ll also help you learn how to provide individualised care for the mother and baby throughout pregnancy, labour, childbirth and the early days of parenthood. All the while you’ll be encouraged to build your communication and interpersonal skills alongside the theoretical and practical learning.
