Equip yourself with the requisite knowledge of evidence based midwifery practice and skills required to provide holistic women and family centred care.

Edinburgh Napier University are proud to offer the new pre-registration Masters of Midwifery programme.

Midwives are recognised as experts in supporting women during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We believe midwifery fosters the belief that childbirth is a normal physiological experience to be nurtured and respected.

What you'll learn

As a midwife you will be recognised as an expert in supporting and advising women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care. This course offers you the opportunity to develop clinical midwifery practice in a variety of healthcare settings and through simulated practice using our state of the art facilities. You will critically explore the provision of maternity services embracing the challenges of prioritising compassion, professionalism and trust.

You will be supported by a team of midwife lecturers who have expertise in both clinical practice and current research.
Midwives are autonomous practitioners who practice in a multi-disciplinary care setting. Midwifery is a very distinct independent health profession which possesses its own knowledge skills and competencies. Midwifery care holistically encompasses the unique experience of each individual woman throughout their journey.

The study of midwifery will teach you the theory of being a midwife through a blended learning approach including lectures, tutorials, online self-directed learning and workshops. You will prepare for your placements in our simulated clinical environment prior to your practice placements across South-East Scotland. Notable midwifery skills include:

• communication skills
• breast feeding
• normal labour and birth
• initial consultation and history taking
• medicines management

On placement you’ll relate theory to real life practice supported by a midwife mentor specifically trained to support you and assess your achievement.

The experience you gain will enable you to become a conscientious midwife and contribute positively to advancing midwifery practice. You’ll become knowledgeable and skilled in the care of pregnant women, their babies and families and graduate ready to go straight into work.

You’ll also be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This qualification means that you’ve been assessed to be a safe and competent midwife with the necessary understanding and abilities.
