MidSoc is a midwifery-specific society which represents the needs of the student midwives at Southampton University. The society aims to provide a platform for students to network, socialise, take part in study days and discuss issues that are specific to midwifery.
The society enables students to have a voice and engage with the wider midwifery community as we believe that this is fundamental for student experience and personal professional development.
