Before taking part in this scheme, I found job applications challenging.
I got offered a job after just one day on Babyem's Maternity Placement Scheme, working with twins which were 6-weeks premature.
I found the placement challenging yet extremely satisfying. The course has boosted my confidence and practical understanding of babies and mothers in the early stages, and their emotions. First-time mothers especially appreciates having the extra support from someone who knows what they are doing.
I definitely would like to pursue maternity nursing as a full-time job – it's challenging, but my placement with Babyem has given me a very good start!
