*mods, please delete if in thewrong place...
I have posted in the study section, however thought this section may get some more traffic. :-)
I am just after some experiences of how you have found studying a B.Mid with young children. In wondering how practical it is?
Also, I would LOVE to have an idea of what the part time time table looked like, if anyone is willing to share, obviously I understand it is likely to change each year...
Thank you! x

My friend is doing this course and has a 4yr old. She has been studying full time and also doing a little paid work on the side and definitely feels overwhelmed at times.
But it's only for a few years to get to the goal she wants so is willing to do whatever it takes to get there.
Studying, placements and family are all time consuming, but she also has to find time to do the continuity of care with about 20 pregnant mums through their antenatal visits etc, and she has to find them, fit as many of their appointments into her schedule and get signed off. And she has to see them through to two post natal visits to be able to use them as part of her hours she needs to log.
It's (from what I hear) a fantastic course and a great career choice, but it is good that are researching what you would be in for.
I hope if you decide to do it that you will have plenty of support from a partner or family members for those times when you are on placement (wherever that could be).

I have just started full time and have 3 young kids
I'm not going to lie, its full on. Quite a large study load plus placement, continuity of care cases, orientation at hospitals etc etc. You basically have to have someone on call for you with young children. It is certainly challenging
In saying that, it can be achieved with a support network, organisation and discipline. It is an incredible career and certainly worth the hard work. An incredible journey to ride.

Sorry to hijack OP but wondering is the course hard to get into as a mature aged student. I've heard it's really competitive?
