Overview

Midwives are autonomous practitioners providing care and support to women and their families during pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period.

Working as part of a multidisciplinary professional team, midwives practise in birth units, communities and hospitals, supporting women to have a positive experience of childbirth.

This dynamic, demanding and privileged role carries great responsibility but is incredibly rewarding. 

The Midwifery (Hons) course from University of the West of England (UWE Bristol)  has a strong practical focus and you'll spend around half of your time learning on clinical placements, supported by midwifery mentors.

Careers / Further study

Midwives are in demand across the UK and graduates enter careers in a wide variety of roles for the NHS and independent sector employers.

We have close links with our NHS partners, who are the main employers of midwifery graduates.
