Course summary

Equip yourself with the requisite knowledge of evidence-based midwifery practice and skills.

Overview

Midwives are recognised as experts in supporting women during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We believe midwifery fosters the belief that childbirth is a normal physiological experience to be nurtured and respected.

To meet the needs of women and their families in today’s society, our course reflects a dynamic student-centered approach to education. In preparation for practice as an autonomous midwife within the maternity services, our course has an emphasis on active learning focusing on:

Developing Critical Thinking and developing expert knowledge
Personal and Professional Reflection
Education
Research Awareness
Leadership
Management

This new innovative and dynamic three-year programme will equip you to become a highly skilled midwife who will deliver and progress evidenced-based research and holistic midwifery care to women and their families. This will lead to potential opportunities in leadership, management, consultancy, research and educational roles.

Over the next decade the Scottish Government plans to implement a new strategy which will shape the future of maternity services in Scotland. This will give you the opportunity to rise to the challenges which will shape and develop the roles of midwife practitioners in the future.

Course details

As a midwife you will be recognised as an expert in supporting and advising women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care.

This course offers you the opportunity to develop expert clinical midwifery practice in a variety of healthcare settings and through simulated practice using our state of the art facilities. You will critically explore the provision of maternity services embracing the challenges of prioritising compassion, professionalism and trust.

A team of midwife lecturers who have expertise in education, clinical midwifery practice and current research will support you.

Midwives are autonomous practitioners who practice in a multi-disciplinary care setting. Midwifery is a very distinct independent health profession, which possesses its own knowledge skills and competencies. Midwifery care holistically encompasses the unique experience of individual women throughout their journey.

Careers

On successful completion of the course, you will be well equipped for your role as a Registered Midwife. This will also be supported by continuous professional development/ revalidation throughout your career based on the NMC Code (2015). The principles of the Code are to:

Promote professionalism and trust
Prioritise people
Practice effectively
Preserve safety

These principles are firmly embedded in our programme and continued application of these principles will enable future career opportunities including, midwifery research, advanced practice or specialist roles and education.
