This is the long awaited second edition of the #1 bestselling book on midwifery applications and getting into midwifery.
Though the old book did a brilliant job and served many people well, supporting aspiring, student and qualified midwives for the last 4 years means I’ve gained much more experience about what works and what doesn’t. I wanted to get this information out there.
There's new content on the world of midwifery, MMI interviews, how to become an independent midwife in the UK by Virginia Howes, a great chapter on nerves and overcoming fear with lots of new strategies, a reading list, and a chapter with tips for your first year as a student midwife.
"Ellie Durant's book is nothing short of perfect! It contains the most valuable advice & guidance to help you get a place at university! Everything from writing your personal statement, to the pre-entry tests, to the interviews!! I have no doubt that I would not be going to university this year without the help of this book! Thank you!" - M.E Allum
