Why Choose a Midwifery degree?
When you study for a Midwifery BSc at the UEA you are choosing a challenging and fascinating career. Midwifery is unique because it is the only profession that focuses solely on the care of pregnant women and their families throughout the whole childbirth experience - from early conception, through labour and in the early stages of motherhood.
This means you will need a very special set of skills. A midwife is invariably the first healthcare professional a pregnant woman encounters, so it goes without saying that excellent communication skills, sensitivity and a sympathetic approach are essential. You will need to respond effectively to the needs of pregnant women and be a reliable and constant source of care and advice during what is probably the most important time of their lives.
It is also vital that you are adaptable, because midwifery is an ever-changing profession and you will be always be teaching, learning and working in a wide variety of settings.
