Midwives offer individual care to women and their families and help them take part in their own care planning during and after pregnancy. Midwifery involves supporting the woman and her partner from the confirmation of the pregnancy, through the birth of the baby and the post-natal period.
As midwives work with women and their families through all stages of pregnancy, they need to be aware of the social and cultural context in which childbirth takes place. They will normally be the lead person in caring for pregnant women, and therefore have to be capable of working independently as well as within the wider health care team.
The BSc (Hons) Midwifery Studies degree is a full time 3 year course which leads to a professional midwifery qualification and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
