Why study midwifery?
Midwives are autonomous practitioners who provide care to women during pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. Working as part of a multidisciplinary professional team, midwives practise in birth units, communities and hospitals, supporting women to have a positive childbirth experience. This privileged role comes with great responsibility and you’ll ultimately be rewarded by a career where you can make a difference.
