Midwifery students are overworked, overwhelmed, and under-compensated for the difficult work they do. Providing free or low-cost services on top of studying full-time and working in an apprenticeship (often unpaid) is not feasible.
Membership with WHMS as a Student Midwife provides the opportunity for you to support access to and education about midwifery for our region. As a Student Midwife Member, you help to provide crucial and experienced insight in supporting a healthy atmosphere for our students. For more information about our education philosophy, click here.
