Aspiring Midwife Taster Days
- Become a Midwife! - A training day for aspiring midwives from SMNET!
If you are often thinking, or even screaming "I want to be a midwife", then you are far from alone. Midwifery as a profession has tens of thousands of applicants each year, but precious few student places are available - competition is certainly fierce... but you can prepare yourself!!
SMNET brings you a truly awesome Midwifery Taster Day that is available across the UK - to help you to get ahead of the competition. Are you an aspiring midwife? ... if so then read on for more details.
What will I learn on the training day?
The 'Become a Midwife' day for aspiring midwives is a fun day that is interactive. It allows you to explore what its like to be a midwife and to see the realities of life as a student midwife whilst understanding the midwife's role.
The day is designed to help you:
- have a broad understanding of the various roles midwives undertake, and different ways midwives work
- identify the implications of pursuing a midwifery career for your life
- express why you want to be a midwife
- assess your options for working with pregnant women and their families and become clearer about your path to midwifery
We'll be discussing the university application process, the things universities look for, and different ways of achieving these.
We hope the day will be inspiring and informative and will give you insights into the world of midwifery, as well as useful information and ideas to help with your application process should you decide that – "YES!! I Want to Become a Midwife!"
Breastfeeding mothers are welcome to bring baby along!
