Year-on-year since 1982 the UK population has been growing, something which goes unnoticed in most areas of the country, but where it is most noticed most is via our health services. In the UK, approximately 900,000 women give birth every year, and for each of these children, a nursing Midwife is involved in every delivery.
Training to be a Midwifery nurse is an admirable role, bringing a new life into the world is one of the most rewarding careers out there. According to the latest Royal College of Midwives based on the analysis of birth figures and population that was released in August 2019, the NHS needs another 2,500 Midwives to cope with the demand the NHS currently faces.
In the current Midwifery workforce, the majority work part-time, with the average age being 43 years old. The sector is ageing, and with 96% of the workforce working in the NHS, in the next 20 years we could see an even higher demand for Midwives as people retire from working life.
