Abstract: This is the third in a series of articles exploring expert clinicians’ participation in teaching pre-registration midwifery students in the classroom setting. This article considers sessions facilitated by a consultant midwife. The role of consultant midwife was first introduced in the UK in 2000 as a senior position within maternity services to provide professional leadership and a senior level of clinical midwifery expertise. A key element of the role of the consultant midwife is education, training and development (Department of Health, 1999). A consultant midwife from Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust discusses her experience teaching pre-registration midwifery students. Feedback from students indicates that they value the input of expert clinicians into pre-registration midwifery education.
