Midwifery Society

Welcome to the Midwifery Society!

Welcome

Firstly, a warm welcome from our newly elected chair of the committee, Loretta Hull:

Hello! Welcome to your midwifery society from all of us on the committee!

2020 has been named as International Year of the Midwife, therefore I couldn’t be happier that I get to share this year with you all as the newly elected chair of the committee. I have lots of exciting ideas for events and socials, along with ideas on how we can make a difference and give back to our community. Being a student midwife is a unique experience, and we aim to bring together midwifery students from across all cohorts to build a huge support network and help you make the most of your student midwife experience here at DMU! We want to continue to provide you with amazing educational events alongside fun social events where we can all get to know each other. Any ideas for events or questions please contact the committee or come and find us face-to-face, we will be happy to help!

I hope to see you all soon and celebrate our 2020 Year of the Midwife!

Loretta
