Students of BMid (Hons) Midwifery at Swansea University graduate as highly skilled professionals who have the clinical expertise and interpersonal skills to ensure optimum physical and emotional well-being during women’s pregnancies, childbirth and early parenthood.
Student midwives work towards providing a service which is effective and satisfying for women and their families. Many women are cared for exclusively by midwives throughout their pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period. Midwifery is therefore a very responsible career, but it has incredible rewards to offset the dedication required.
Candidates need to demonstrate a strong educational profile.
