1. Hello to all on allnurses,

    I'm a mature student in my 1st year of a 4 year midwifery degree. This is a direct entry course so I don't have a general nursing qualification. It is the first year that this course has been available in Ireland and I was extremely lucky to be offered a place. I have always wanted to be in the nursing profession but it was only after having children of my own that I considered Midwifery, and I love it. I have been privileged to assist a mother in bringing her baby into the world and what it did was confirm, for me, that I had made the right choice.........

    Thanks all for the welcome! I have told the rest of the Midwifery Students on my course about the site.........so you may be inundated with us in the next few weeks! It will be good for us to get other perspectives on our chosen profession, and maybe some advancement in holistic care that we haven't seen here yet!:smilecoffeecup:
