I want to practise Midwifery in
Finding the right overseas midwifery elective is a crucial step in your professional development.
You want quality practical experience that’s in line with your course requirements, but you also want to have a great time in an exotic country, meet new people and make unforgettable memories.
Practicing midwifery in the developing world will be a welcome challenge. High patient loads and short staffed wards mean you’ll be in the thick of it from the very beginning. You’ll learn cultural differences when handling pregnancies that will be entirely new to you, go back to basics on wards with limited equipment and pick up unique expertise from department specialists — you’ll be surrounded by skilled and experienced staff throughout your time abroad.
And because your development is our priority we limit student midwife numbers on all of our placements, making getting the attention you need to grow easier than ever.
Book your placement with us and we’ll tailor you a perfectly matched placement, organise your entire in-country experience, and be there to make sure everything runs like clockwork.
We’ve nurtured long-standing partnerships with maternity departments in developing countries all over the world. These relationships allow us to ensure that you will: -
- Gain unique knowledge — learn techniques specific to the country and department you study in
- Learn birthing survival skills — take part in deliveries without the use of modern equipment
- Absorb knowledge from experts — electives are supervised by experienced professionals
- Expand your field of knowledge — learn from staff in numerous departments
- Benefit from exclusivity — restricted student numbers means you get the attention required for your ongoing development
- Jump straight in — busy hospitals will utilise your skills from the moment you’re on the ward
Tailored to you
But how can you tell this is the right placement for you?
We’ve gone out of our way to make sure our midwifery electives are tailored specifically for you. That means a placement that matches your skills and interests to the smallest detail.
No templates, just what you want in the way you want it.
Our expansive knowledge of each destination allows us to build up your elective better than anybody else. We take deliberate steps to deliver exactly what you pay for.
Your elective is mindfully planned and supervised while you’re there. That lets you attend to developing your skills, and having an unforgettable time on the other side of the world.Read more about what's included
We’ll sweat the small stuff (the big stuff too)
You’ll be looked after from the moment you join us. Your assigned Operations Manager has personally checked out every hospital and clinic in the regions they’re taking care of. They know exactly how to help.
Worried about planning? Don’t be — your Ops Manager will walk you through our detailed pre-trip preparation to make sure every box is checked.
You’ll benefit from your personal online elective planner so you can take full control of your placement’s surprising flexibility. We’ll sort out your university and visa supporting documentation, too.
Our time-honoured partnerships with hospitals and clinics mean that we can also promise a nourishing experience with local staff.
And at the Work the World house you can expect catered meals, complimentary language lessons, 24/7 security, and 24/7 in-country support to help you sleep better at night.
We’ll even pick you up from the Airport!Read more about us
I doubt that the experience would have been as fulfilling without my fellow placement students and the in-country staff at the house.

I was also surprised and overcome at how well the midwives cope with the limited equipment they have.
