Nurturing and supporting student midwives

Nurturing and supporting student midwives is vital in the current midwifery climate. The SMF has reached out and engaged with students from across the UK to to hear what they are saying and how they were feeling currently. Many replied saying they felt unsupported and unsafe. This webinar discusses the support offered to  student midwives with small scale solutions on how we can all do more to look out for each other and treat others with kindness.
