Where I find information about applying to do voluntary work in the field of midwifery?
Seeking voluntary work is an excellent plan to gain some insight into midwifery before applying to University. We would suggest that you look around in your local area for birth centres and maternity units and send the manager your CV with a covering letter explaining why you are applying for voluntary work. Other opportunities that you might consider looking into are: is there a local pregnancy yoga class where the teacher may allow you to join in the sessions? approach your local branch of the National Childbirth Trust and see if they have any opportunities for you to observe classes. Look out for Pregnancy, Baby and Parenting Road Shows/Events - go along and network with the exhibitors as this may lead to opportunities for you.
