Overview

You will develop into independent learners through a programme of study which combines classroom-based, directed and self-directed learning with full engagement in clinical care, under supervision, to women during their childbirth experience.

In the first year of the Midwifery (Hons) programme from Keele University, you will develop the foundation for a comprehensive understanding of the physiological, psychological, social, and public health dimensions of normal pregnancy and childbirth. You will gain insight into the importance of communication for effective caring and professional relationships and begin to explore research evidence as the basis for providing optimal care.

This initial foundation will be built on as the course progresses and knowledge is developed about conditions that may complicate pregnancy, the impact of these on women, babies, and other family members and the skills and the multidisciplinary teamwork required to manage them effectively. The final part of the programme will prepare you for assuming full responsibility as a qualified midwife.

Careers

96% of Keele graduates were in a job or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE)

You will experience providing care to pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy and in a range of contexts: women’s own homes; clinics in the community; hospital; and the midwifery birth centre. This will develop your experience and understanding for a career within Midwifery.
