Midwifery Students are stepping up into NHS service due to COVID-19.

Some are ex-nurses but third-year students are stepping up into clinical service too.  Midwifery schools are experiencing a crash-course in online learning for those students in college.

Hear what is happening, the challenges for students and education staff – many of whom themselves have stepped up. What are the new rules and challenges?

In this Maternity & Midwifery Hour, Anna, Alicia and Sue provide up to date information on working through COVID-19 and how student midwives, midwives and allied healthcare professionals are stepping up during these exceptionally difficult times.

Your chance to hear the latest thinking and get your questions answered.

The Maternity & Midwifery Hour is sponsored by MATFLIX: video streaming from maternity experts.
