Hi, I'm Amber, a 3rd year Midwifery student at the Chelmsford Campus. I can safely say I'm on the craziest roller coaster of my life but loving every minute of it.

Being a Midwife has always been a dream for me and after taking years out of education, I took the plunge, studied hard at college and here I am! Finally achieving my dreams is surreal, amazing, scary, enjoyable and fascinating all at the same time. No day is the same in the world of Midwifery (a statement you will hear a lot!!).

I've learnt so much in my short time here at ARU but words cannot describe the feeling of coming out of my first trimester with THREE (not just one, but three!!) births!! It's just the start of my career as a Midwife and it's incredible.
