"Becoming a student Midwife"

About: Nottingham North & East Sure Start Centres

(as a volunteer/advocate),

I Volunteered at Sure Start to help new mothers with breastfeeding issues. This was to help with my journey to become a Midwife, alongside this I did my access to nursing and midwifery diploma. I did this for at least a year which was great experience which really helped with my application to Nottingham University for the the Midwifery degree. I started in September 2015 I am loving every minute of it! ! so thanks to all at sure start as I am doing the job I dreamed of.
