Has Belfast Midwives inspired you to consider a career in Midwifery?1st February 2023
The final episode Belfast Midwives, the hit Channel 4 docu-series which followed our Midwifery team, aired this week. The series was a celebration of the important role of midwives and the wider multi-disciplinary team. Some of our midwives have been reflecting on what they love about being a midwife as the series ends.
