Career opportunities

Midwife means to ‘be with woman’. Midwifery is a profession that fuses academic knowledge, clinical practice and personal qualities to provide skilled care for women in a variety of settings. 

Midwives can work in hospitals, birth centres, in the community and independently. The role of the midwife encompasses the woman’s journey through pregnancy, labour and birth and into the postnatal period.
