    From what stage to what stage

    You are continually learning even after qualification.

    I first considered applying seriously (as in looking at prospectus and what I needed to do) whilst on maternity leave with my son who was born in December 2003 - and it was warmish, so probably May 2004 and I qualified in March 2008 so for me from thinking to qualifying was less than 4 years.

    Re: how long

    Midwifery is an on-going learning job. We cannot afford to just stop learning so i suppose that question is similar to how long is a peice of string... Depends what you want to do, whether you want to specialise or something too... An example includes bereavement midwifery, research, going into the educational side, management! Lots...

    I do hope that helps, just search a little on Google sure you will find lots!

    for medical reasons i have to take a year out of college, do u think that will make it harder for me to get in to college.

    also, what if i take a home A level, does that cause any problems.
    what is the best way to go with becoming a midwife
