Student Midwives, qualified Midwives and prospective students are all welcome to join the society to take advantage of the events we organise. Bringing people together in this way creates a great community of support for our members and keeps ideas fresh for those in practice.

We are always open to new ideas from our members so please contact us with your suggestions.

The committee meet regularly through the year to put things in place for some great events. There is an official Annual General Meeting (AGM) in March each year where new comittee officers are elected, however if you would like to join the committee as a general member please get in touch at any point throughout the year - we would welcome any extra contribution!

We as a society have so many plans for this years calender, so keep your eyes peeled to see when tickets go live!
