Abstract

Midwifery education is dynamic and responsive to changes in society, population demographic, theory and policy. Changes to education since the BJM began in 1993 are phenomenal. The overarching aim of midwifery education is to prepare undergraduate students to be eligible to register as a midwife following a programme of theory and clinical practice and to enhance the potential of a midwifery workforce via postgraduate education. Reflecting upon the last 25 years of midwifery education provides insights in to the challenges of midwifery practice and the need to prepare midwives to be reflective and responsive to transformation as we advance towards 2025.
