Volunteer job opportunities abroad for midwives
We urgently need experienced midwives to make motherhood safer for women in communities with some of the world’s highest maternal mortality rates.
Volunteer midwife roles are generally longer term, ranging from one to two years, but we also have occasional short-term assignments for up to six months.
You’ll be a qualified midwife with at least two years’ experience (five years for short-term placements). Clinical and classroom teaching experience is desirable, as is experience of managing and mentoring others.
What you’ll be doing
As well as improving maternal healthcare and management, you’ll be training staff in all aspects of midwifery. Countries you could be working in include Ethiopia or Sierra Leone.
VSO's midwifery volunteer programmes are excellent opportunities to experience midwifery practises in developing countries, helping to provide essential training practises and process to student midwives and other maternity services.
