University of Brighton Midwifery

Midwives provide essential care, advice and support for women and their families during pregnancy, labour and early post-natal stages.

As a midwife, you will share people’s personal experiences as well as helping to shape them. To thrive in this role you need to be adaptable, compassionate and dependable, with a sound knowledge of both everyday procedure and potential complications.

To ensure you can confidently apply theory to practice, you will spend 50% of the year on placements in varied health settings, and simulate care and delivery in our Flexible Learning Environment and new midwifery care and delivery suite, which includes a replica hospital room and home birthing room.

The values of the NHS constitution are embedded in our curriculum; where patients come first in everything the NHS does, and include respect and dignity, compassion and working together for patients.

Midwives are needed all over the world. To give you the opportunity to experience midwifery abroad, we offer overseas observational placements.
