To qualify as a midwife

About the project

I'm a 23 year old student midwife and I love my career already! I am in first year and although it's great, I'm struggling with money.

 

I received £548 per month as a bursary, but have to pay £568.75 on rent - and thats before things like food and my phone bill!

 

I'm 3 hours away from home and rarely get to go back to see my family due to not having enough money. 

 

We have uni Monday - Friday 9-5 for a few weeks and then we go on placement for about 3-6 months at a time (I'm in the Highlands of Scotland for this)

We only get 7 weeks of holiday a year and don't get a summer like normal students.

 

Whilst we are on placement, we work 37.5 hours a week with no pay. I know its all experience but I am doing a full time job and delivering all of your beautiful babies!

 

So please, even if you can only spare £1, it would mean a massive deal to me.
