Midwives are the go-to for women during pregnancy, labour, birth and for several weeks after. They provide support and advice during one of the biggest milestones in a woman’s life. A midwife spends their days educating women on pregnancy, birth and parenting, organising and discussing ultrasounds and blood tests, referring to other specialists when necessary, prescribing medication for labour, examining and caring for newborn babies and advising on breastfeeding, immunisations, contraception and general mother and baby health.
Students studying midwifery at Wintec will graduate with an internationally recognised qualification and the knowledge and experience needed to own their own business as a midwife.
Study combines theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. Students will have the chance to care for women and their babies and learn about the midwifery profession by applying classroom learning in practice. Wintec staff are dedicated and experienced there to guide students every step of the way.
