Held at the UTS City campus, Discover Midwifery sessions are for you if you are considering becoming a registered midwife.

Registered midwives provide support for women and their families throughout their pregnancy and birth. Midwifery considers pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting to be healthy processes that are a normal part of life for many women.

Anyone considering a career in midwifery will benefit from attending the session - whether you're in high school or looking for a change in career.

This slideshow is from the April 2015 session.
