Year 10 Maternity Trip

On 1st of July, 5 Year 10 students took part in a Maternity Unit careers day at the Thackary Medical Museum. They rotated between 6 different stations talking to midwives, doctors, researchers, neo-natal nurses and maternity support workers.

At each station, students took part in a hands-on activity and learnt about each role. They took each other’s blood pressure, temperature and oxygen levels and used a simulator birth model to deliver a pretend baby. They then filled out a booklet about each role and what they had learnt. All of these students want to work in the NHS when they are older, so the day was a good insight into all the roles available.
