How to write a Ucas personal statement - Which?
My ambition to become a midwife has its origins in my own experience of witnessing childbirth when I assisted at the home birth of my brother. I was struck by the professional competence of the midwife, her genuine attention to the needs of her patient at such a critical time and the skill with which she managed each stage of the labour and gave comfort and confidence to both mother and bystanders. My ambition is to be able to use my skills and training to help prepare women and their families for this major life event and ensure that they have every confidence in my ability to lead things to a successful conclusion. I am interested in the complexities of the subject, in the core questions of microbiology, pharmacology, anatomy and physiology which govern the medical process. I am keen to explore ways to establish successful breastfeeding, and to learn about the necessary responses to complicated childbirth, the use of drugs, the special care for neonates and the medical conditions which can affect them. I know too that there is a need to be prepared, both practically and mentally, to deal with emergencies, and that this can call for considerable personal strength and resilience. At the same time I am also very interested in the public health role of midwives, in their responsibility for educating new mothers both before and after giving birth.
Personal Statement for Midwifery
Medical application timing is all-important! Nothing contributes to failure more than inattention to editing. They will remember you even till the last text is checked. We work on each document scrupulously to satisfy the demands of the chosen medical field.
For example, the 3 year Bmidwif course at the University of Manchester has only 61 places on the course entry. Being a midwife is about being committed to the care of the woman throughout the pregnancy and assisting with the birth of the baby. A midwife will offer support and guidance to the woman and her partner from the confirmation of the pregnancy through to the post-natal period, which is not less than 10 days after the birth.
