Assist women in preparing for one of the most important moments of her life: help her during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding and prepare the parents-to-be for the happy event. You’ll gain all the experience you’ll need right from the first semester.


The brain represents the conveying of scientific knowledge and research as part of the course. We will provide you with basic knowledge in subjects such as anatomy, the mechanics of childbirth and birthing positions and postnatal physiology. Our active research and development work, especially in the field of breastfeeding and obesity prevention, ensures the course content is kept up-to-date. Your seminar paper and Bachelor’s thesis will help you develop independent and analytical thought processes and approaches to your work.


You can apply the theory you have learnt in practical situations during detailed exercises and simulation training sessions. The hands therefore represent the practical skills and capabilities you will learn with us. These include skills and drills as well as knowledge of breastfeeding positions, blood tests, treating childbirth injuries, resuscitating newborns, emergency management and much more.


The heart is also important alongside all these skills and tasks: it is a symbol of social competence and this is particularly important in the job of the midwife. You will also learn some advisory techniques in addition to the various aspects of health promotion. Your subsequent job will require numerous social skills which you will learn as part of our course.
