Welcome to the Midwifery Society!
Firstly, a warm welcome from our newly elected chair of the committee; Charlotte Gadsby:
Hello and a warm welcome from your new midwifery society. Our aim is to unite cohorts to provide an enhanced learning experience during our time at DMU through educational and social events. Our first event will be an infant loss screening, details are in the pipeline and are close to being finalised. It would be great to see new faces to share this learning opportunity with. We are also organising a Christmas lunch to celebrate our hard work and achievements this year, and will be sending invites shortly. This is a great opportunity to get to know the society better and most importantly to meet new friends. We are also in discussions with various guest speakers who are willing to come and share their knowledge and experience with us. We hope to be posting dates in the new year, as well as the 2018 conference. So as you can see there is lots going on in such a short space of time. Please do get in touch via social media or come and speak to us about joining at our upcoming events - the more the merrier!
I look forward to meeting you all soon,
We would love for you to join our society! Please visit the website on https://www.demontfortsu.com/soc/MidwiferySociety/ and add the £5 joining fee to your basket.

Our first event of the year was the screening of the “Still Loved” film; a documentary made to show families’ experiences of losing a baby. We invited student midwives, qualified midwives, nurses and families along to the screening and to raise awareness following the Baby Loss Awareness week.
We would like to thank everybody who was able to attend the event, and for all the support we received.
We are hoping to put on another showing of the film some time in 2018; it would be great to see you all there! Keep an eye out for updates for this event.
