A week in the life of a One to One Midwife

Have you ever wondered what its like to be part of a team at One to One Midwives?

Have you thought of applying for a job with One to One but not sure what a typical day is like?

You’re in luck!

One to One Wirral midwife, Michelle Ryan, has shared a week in the life of a One to One midwife.

Monday:

At 8:50AM I do the school run. 
At 9:00AM I take ‘divert’ off my phone ready for my working day. 
Between 9:15 – 1:00PM I saw 5 of my postnatal women. 
At 1:00PM I conducted a new antenatal home booking and then 2 postnatal/NIPES. 
At 3:30PM I did the school run then at 6:00PM started my on call commitment.
I completed my paper work between 8:00 - 10:00PM. I didn’t receive any call outs.

Tuesday:

8:30AM School run then straight to clinic to attend a scan. I had a natter with some colleagues before heading to 5 antenatal home visits. 
3:30PM School run. 
6:00PM diverted my phone to the on call midwife and completed my daily paper work (I prefer to do paperwork at night so I can do school run)

Wednesday:

Protected day off

Thursday:

At 8:50AM I took my sons to school. 
At 9:00AM I took off my phone ‘divert’ but went to the gym between 9:00 – 10:00AM. 
Between 10:30-12:00 I went to 2 routine antenatal visits, then between 12:00 -3:00PM I saw 3 postnatal women. 
Between 3:00 – 5:00PM I did 2 antenatal home visits then I was called as a second to attend a lovely home birth. 
I was home at 6:45PM and diverted to the on-call midwife.

Friday:

Took my boys to school as usual and soon after took the divert off my phone. 
At 9:00AM I got a call from one of my women needing support in labour. At 11:00AM baby was born and after all checks completed I left at 1:00PM. 
I saw 4 other women for antenatal checks then home at 5:00PM. 
6:00PM diverted phone.

Saturday:

Conducted a Hypnobirthing course then went to 2 primary postnatal home visits.

Sunday:

Protected day off

No two days are the same at One to One. No two days are the same in midwifery!
