Welcome to the Midwifery Society!

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

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!

Knitted boobs for sale

Knitted boobs can be used as a lactation aid to demonstrate positioning and attachment in breastfeeding. Ideal for student midwives whilst on placement, at uni or even just for decoration.

100% of the funds raised through the sale of these knitted boobs will be donated to Baby Basics Leicester, a volunteer-led charity that works with vulnerable women and families who are struggling to meet the financial & practical burden of looking after a new baby. More information about Baby Basics can be found at https://www.babybasicsleicester.co.uk/. Baby Basics Leicester is part of the Church of the Martyrs charity. Charity Number 1134668. Telephone number 07933 570 378.

We're pleased to announce that we're affiliated with the Leicester RCM Branch!

The Leicester RCM Branch are a group of midwives who are passionate about professional practice and development, and we can't wait to work with them to host some events in the future!
