Hello – Emma here.

Hi, Midwifery is a different branch to psychiatry but there is a shortage of those so I’m sure they’ll be grateful for your interest. You could find out if any of your friends’ mums or dads are midwives or know of any, and then ask them some questions. I have delivery babies myself and can tell you there’s nothing like seeing the miracle of birth day in day out. Good luck!

Midwifery training is very similar to nurse training and we don’t have midwives in our team. The home treatment team often work with pregnant mothers as there is an increase of them becoming unwell during pregnancy and also once delivered the baby. We have a lot of communications and sometimes meet with midwives to help support the pregnant mother if they become their mental health becomes unwell at any stage during their pregnancy.
You will need at least 4 GCSEs and or 1, 2 or 3 A’levels in maths, English, science, psychology, sociology. Although it all depends on the university.
I found academia difficult and did not have great grades. I had D, Cs and Bs in my GCSEs and A’levels but was still accepted by a prestigious university and passed all my exams.
If you don’t do well at school from age you can complete an a 1 year access course that can help to move into university. You still require maths and English GCSE (A-C) and who you haven’t got this they can book you on this when doing the access course.
