The Midwifery Department have recently facilitated a series of student ‘drop in’ sessions to enhance our students’ confidence in relation to clinical skills.

Sessions are open to all year groups as an opportunity to enhance and develop current skills prior to commencing placements.

The first session has been popular with second year students in particular, which had a focus on Abdominal Palpations and Care in Labour.

Future sessions are also scheduled to include Bed Making, Neonatal Resuscitation, Haemorrhage and Fetal Monitoring and Safety Considerations.
