Aspiring Student Midwife Preparation Course
Welcome to Every Birth Matters Aspiring Student Midwife Preparation Course.
This course is for any aspiring student midwife at any stage of their journey that would like to spend some time expanding their knowledge of supporting pregnant people through their maternity experience. This amazing preparation course will give you a foundation to begin your understanding and get you to think about yourself in the role of a midwife. Learning key values and reflecting, you can work through this course at your own pace.
I have worked within family support and teaching adults for the past 12 years as well as being a doula and hypnobirthing practitioner for last 4 years. I like many of you have re-sat my GCSEs and completed an access course and I have received my offers for university and having this experience and knowledge I feel has given me a wonderful insight into the world of midwifery and what to expect, which I want to now share with you.
The course is completed from the comfort of your own home. You will work through the preparation materials and then you will attend the two online workshop days to help explore and consolidate your learning. The online workshop is done as whole group allowing time for discussions, questions, tasks and reflections. We will cover a range of topics over the two workshop days which will underpin your desires to become a midwife and prepare you for what lies ahead.
The topics we will be covering are:
- The role of a midwife

Professional Teaching Code of Practice
I would like to thank you from aspiring midwives such as myself for this amazing opportunity to confirm our career choices and expand our knowledge further on something we are passionate about. You are friendly and instantly make everyone taking part feel comfortable and calm and that we are all included. You made sure we all had the opportunity to speak and feel comfortable to ask anything we would like to know. I came away with so much knowledge on topics I had not even thought to look up. You go above and beyond to support people and offer your help. After taking part in this course I feel I can confirm that midwifery is in fact something I want to carry on with, this has given me the confidence and knowledge to hopefully secure my place at university. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to work towards becoming a student midwife.
