About us

Welcome to The Midwifery Circle at BNU! We are a group who wish to develop and grow their skills in caring for women, birthing people, their partners and their families.

We offer opportunities for anyone interested in midwifery to join our discussion, meet socially and take part in the extracurricular learning on offer.

Together, we provide a safe and compassionate space for exploring, thinking, sharing and learning.


We are an all-inclusive society and welcome everyone with an interest in supporting pregnant people, midwifery and maternity services. We invite members such as BNU students, non-BNU students, aspiring students, professionals and anyone else who is interested and shares our passion for all things midwifery! Everyone is welcome to come and join us in the circle! We look forward to welcoming you!


We believe that working alongside others broadens our understanding, knowledge and skills, and fosters a multidisciplinary approach to working at the earliest opportunity. 

We would love the opportunity to work collaboratively with other midwifery societies. Collaboration enables all midwifery societies to maximise their offering by minimising their expenses; for example: by sharing the cost of an online workshop or guest speaker.  In addition, by working collaboratively with other midwifery societies, we can encourage our members to make lifelong connections and develop professional networks that transcend educational institutions and healthcare organisations.

So, what’s not to like?!?!  Please get in touch! We would love to hear from you.
