The University of Chester Midwifery Society has been set up for student midwives and those interested in the profession to socialise, fundraise, share ideas, support one another and discuss midwifery issues. We will be planning study days with speakers from varying areas of midwifery, charity fundraisers, equipment sales and (most importantly!) social events to ensure all 3 years can get to know one another. All our student midwives will be allocated a 'buddy' from 2nd and 3rd year to ensure they are supported and have an informal contact for any questions regarding the course or their placement area. We also have Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts to share our activities and events, and we aim to actively promote the course and university to prospective student midwives.
