Study Midwifery Degrees

Midwifery refers to the care and services provided by midwives, the medical professionals who support women and their families during pregnancy, birth and recovery, ensuring that both mother and baby are healthy. A midwife will perform check-ups, education and advice, birth assistance, and guidance for new parents. The midwife is an integral part of a pregnancy and birth, helping expectant families prepare for and cope with their new arrival(s).

An undergraduate degree in midwifery will cover the basic midwifery sciences, basic health skills, midwifery care, ethics and law, as well as other additional modules that will aid your professional development. Your modules will focus on both midwifery practice and theory, making sure that you have adequate clinical skills to enter the workplace.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lecture and seminars, as well as practical sessions. There may also be the opportunity to participate in a clinical placement, allowing you to develop and improve your practical skills. There will be a heavy focus on clinical practice throughout your degree, making sure that you are fully equipped for employment.
