Course Summary

This programme will challenge midwives to critically examine how they can work to optimise the childbirth experience of all women and their families with a particular focus on issues surrounding breastfeeding. Graduates of this programme will have the ability to not only reflect on professional practice to enhance self-awareness and professional development but also the skills and knowledge base to critically analyse and evaluate maternity care provision in order to identify areas for development. Underpinned by the latest development in women’s health, midwifery and maternity care, this exciting new programme will be of interest to qualified midwives.

In addition to equipping any midwife with additional knowledge and skills that would enhance his or her autonomy within practice, this programme will equip midwives with the necessary knowledge and skills required to seek employment opportunities at a senior level, for example: as a consultant midwife, practice development and leadership roles and can be used as a stepping stone to gaining the MSc Midwifery Studies.
