Why this Course?

This 4 year Honours Degree course is designed to enable students to develop the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to fulfil the role of a midwife. Learning throughout this course takes place in the classroom, specialised skills laboratory and in our affiliated/partner clinical sites (Our Lady of Lourdes Maternity Unit, Drogheda, Cavan Hospital Maternity Unit and Letterkenny University Hospital Maternity Unit).

The philosophy of midwifery is based on a view of childbirth as part of the life cycle and therefore viewed as a normal, healthy and profound experience in women’s lives. Midwives recognise, respect and safeguard normal processes during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period whilst also acknowledging that some women may experience more complex pregnancies and may require specialised care.
