As a midwife or midwife practitioner, you will advise, care and support women and their babies during pregnancy, labour and the early postnatal period. You'll help women to make their own decisions about care and services and will provide health education and parenting advice.

Depending on the course you choose, you can gain registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which gives an internationally recognised professional qualification enabling you to practise in the UK and overseas.
