This 4-year Honours Degree programme is designed to enable students to develop the professional knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to fulfil the role of a midwife. a role which involves providing individualised care to women and their families. Learning throughout these courses takes place in the classroom, in a specialised skills laboratory and in our affiliated partner hospitals. The philosophy of midwifery is based on a view of childbirth as part of the life cycle and therefore viewed as a normal, healthy, and profound experience in women’s lives. Midwives recognise, respect and safeguard normal processes during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period whilst also acknowledging that some women may experience more complex pregnancies and require specialised care needs. Midwives provide care in a range of settings, including maternity units, midwifery-led units, and services both in the hospital and community. Midwives also work in partnership with other members of the healthcare team. The purpose of this midwife registration education programme is to equip midwifery students with the necessary knowledge, skills and professional behaviours to practise as competent midwives, capable of autonomously carrying out all the activities of a midwife as set out in the EC Directive of 2005. As a student in this course, you will develop the professional knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to fulfil the role of a midwife. The role involves providing individualised care to women and their families. Learning takes place in the classroom, in a specialised skills laboratory and in our affiliated partner hospitals: Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda, Cavan General Hospital (maternity unit) and Letterkenny University Hospital (maternity unit).
