Sophie’s experience


“Midwifery is all about building relationships and trust with women and their families, and during the course you get a lot of opportunities to practice those skills. As well as placements at a range of different Trusts, we each have three real cases that we follow from early pregnancy through to delivery and postnatal care. We go to all appointments and are involved in all aspects of care. It’s very practical and hands-on, and gives you a real taste of what it’s like to handle your own caseload.”
