SMNET Edge has held its leading 'Applying to become a midwife' days for several years, with a great deal of success and high attendance figures. Unfortunately, owing to geographical restrictions this course has never been available across the country and limited resources have proven challenging of late. Fortunately, Neighbourhood Midwives have also been offering their own midwifery taster day, which they would also like to make available to more people and expand the educational content of.

SMNET is therefore delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Neighbourhood Midwives in a joint initiative to deliver a market leading version of these courses. We've taken the best bits from each taster day, taken on board feedback from previous delegates and have created a truly awesome day of inspiration, learning and robust preparation for applying.

Sounds fantastic, right? If you're serious about getting into Midwifery then block out your diary for Monday 15th September! This will be...

Independent midwives UK (IMUK) are pleased to announce resolution of the longstanding ‘Choose your Midwife, Choose your Birth’ campaign to secure workable, affordable professional indemnity insurance (PII) for self- employed (independent) midwives.

IMUK Chair Jacqui Tomkins said “This campaign saw...
